Typography

Typographic Portrait

“Typography is a visual graphic language when it is used creatively and expressively. As a form, type contains the design elements of line, shape, texture, size and value and can be arranged into graphic, compositions.”

The first part of our typography assignment was to sketch portrait of ourselves into our notebooks. It was too hard to keep looking in a mirror to sketch myself so i found a photo of my self and tried my best to sketch that instead 😀 heres what i got…….

Based on our sketch we were den to redo the image using letters and numbers, we could use magazine, newspapers, via Photoshop or illustrator, and by hand. And since i still have no idea how to use the adobe features i went with my best instinct and hand done the assignment 😛

So i thought the best way to do this was to draw a quick outline as a guide…..

….and den i splashed on the letters 😀

I used words like, Shauna, lee, brennan, me, creative, intelligence, live, laugh, love and smile.. I thought using my name and a few words to describe me worked best. I also used colour to make it more interesting.

hope you like it 😀

to finish of I thought I’d add some really cool typographic portraits I found on the net 😀
