Unit 10 – Self Directed Project: Brief 1 – Research: Expressive Typography

Moving on from what I produced yesterday I thought it would be a good idea to start using the actual content and playing around with the layout. First of all I decided to look at what others had produced with typography. Below are two pieces of expressive typography that I found interesting as they both use the content to influence the arrangement of the text.

Work by Bezette Stad, can’t seem to find anything in english about him and his work.

“La cantatrice chauve” is a french play written in 1950 by Eugène Ionesco. ”La cantatrice chauve” designed by Massin used typography to express the content of the writing. Massin attempts to allow the reader to feel like they are experiencing the play.
