IXD103 Week 2: Turning Geometric Shapes into Letterforms Task

During this weeks lecture we were given an hour to write our first names using letterforms made only geometric shapes ie. circles, squares, triangles.

Here is what I did:

I was quite pleased with what I came up with. I wanted it to come off as more fun and.  playful so I took a literal approach to the brief by having the letter shapes start out as big shapes. Then I put little shapes where I felt they were necessary in making the letter identifiable.

I got to look at some of everyone else’s designs on padlet after time was up. I t was really cool and interesting to see the different approaches everyone took to the brief. Some were quite traditional and others were a bit more abstract and outside the box.

A lot of people made theirs digitally so I think I might do the same whenever I get time. Overall I think that this was a fun exercise and it got me to start considering letters as shapes.
