Unit 10 – Self Directed Project: Brief 1 – Experimentation: Type Development

Doodling some more, and come up with a  few variations of how meaning of text can be represented through experimenting with type and layout. Drawing words, or rather trying to express their meaning is really hard when it isn’t obvious or blatant.


I thought using illustrator might be the easiest application to use when trying to manipulate type as you can make the letters into paths (Create Outlines). I think I started off quite well with the first recipe, then it got a bit sloppy towards the end. The best bit to illustrate through type is the process, the method of cooking. The ingredients list is a bit boring.

It makes quite a nice pattern.  Also the white space makes it all a lot more easier to read and understand. Will definitely try to use this more flexible approach to type within my developments.
