Today for class we had to redo the Visual Hiearchy project. With some new insights on design I think I did a lot better job with it. Here is the first one again:
Not much changed here. Just used a font called renograe that I got from Dafont.
Here is part 2:
Just was able to change the widths in this one. So I basically used bold on the Kimmel Center Inc. part because it was the most important piece.
I was able to change the sizes here. Everything that was important was made bigger and the not so important stuff got made smaller. I kept the bold on the Kimmel Center Inc. part. Made the stroke width on the part underneath a little more intense too.
Leading, kerning and tracking were the big differences here. I thought that expanding the Kimmel Center Inc. gave that part more depth.
Final Part 5:
A lot got changed here towards the top. I really like the centered feeling I get with the stuff underneath, but I wanted to make Kimmel Center Inc. really pop. So I used a type path and made a balloon looking shape and typed the Kimmel Center Inc there. I tried to figure out some stuff for the Dance, Jazz, and Ballet parts, but alas, I couldn’t. I wanted to make it meld with the balloon shape, but I couldn’t get it done. I am still learning so it will only be a matter of time until I master illustrator like I did with In Design. Adobe better watch out!
For today’s project we had to do something called a visual hierarchy. We had to use set words so I didn’t get to do any really cool Star Wars stuff, but I think what I did is a pretty good representation of what the hierarchy is. Here part one:
Nothing special, just the text that we have to change up eventually.
Here is part 2:
This one is just changing the weight of the font. Essentially, I made the font bold.
Here is part 3:
I got to play with the size of the text and the weight. This one seems boring to me personally, what do you guys think?
Here is part 4:
Another boring one, but weight, text size, and leading and tracking were allowed for this one. The next one is much better.
I had complete freedom on this one. I changed quite a few things and I think I made it pop pretty well. What do you guys think I should do to make it look better? Any feedback is appreciated.
Look out for more school stuff soon and the Depression piece ends tomorrow with, “How to maintain a healthy emotional life post depression.” Hope to see you guys looking at it. It’s important stuff.
Well, that is a lot of stuff to process isn’t it? This was another project for my typography class. We had to make a banner that had an 1800s flair font wise. What do you guys think? I couldn’t make Star Wars into anything but the intended font of the 1970s though; I hope you will all forgive me. That’s all for today. Maybe I will start adding more classes once I get back Sunday? What would you guys think?
Hey everyone! First blog! Exciting, huh? Anyway I wanted to update you guys on a project I am working on for my Typography class this semester. I added the class a week after classes started, and so I am a little behind. The project is to take a word and, you know what? I can explain this better by just showing you.
