IXD101 Class Exercise:- Typography

In class we studied typography.

(See Lecture Notes)

I decide to use the letters E & A and see what I do with them. For the E I was interested in seeing if I could change its shape and to achieve this I made the top and bottom lines into points. For the A I decided to use the small triangle space in between as a canvas so I widened the space into a oval like shape and inserted a triangle into the oval.

 A & 7

H & L

 

 

 

 

Z & S

 

 

 

 

 

E & 4

 

 

 

 

V & J
