I found out about Nicole Dextras’ work when I was doing some research in my Ice Lollies Typography project . From what I have seen on her flickr account, she makes giant letters out of ice and leaves them on a place called Toronto Island (which I assume to be in America?)  to just see what happens to them. I wouldn’t say there is anything amazing about the typeface, but the background scene combined with...

‘The student essential’. I hate the stuff (and Red Bull) but some people depend on it to keep them awake (Mr Ribeiro!) The ‘Final Major Project’ of my first year (OMG it has gone so fast!) of my BTEC course is to design a Relentless can image. Everyone in my class has been given an art movement of the past to influence our design and I have got: Die Brucke – German Expressionism. The movement...

This is in relation to Typeface by Tasha, however I decided to give it a post of its own 🙂 This afternoon it was kind of sunny so… any excuse for an ice lolly or two 🙂 (It turned out that it wasn’t really all that sunny OR warm so hoody was a must and my excuse for my facial expression is that the lolly was lemon flavoured and a bit sour!) After experimenting with...

Typeface by Tasha continued… (The other post was getting a bit long) Yesterday I spent about 5 hours in the 3D workshop working on molds and letter stuff Making the walls around M,C and V Cut out the stencils for letters F and S Extruded and cut F… into some interesting shapes. The curved F (above) looked really nice 🙂 The end section of the extruded S… F and S in clay Pouring the vinyl...

The last project in the Typography unit is to design/make our own typeface! I think this is a great project, and really creative – perfect for meeee 🙂The only problem is that, well everything seems to have already been done! After some random brainstorming, I narrowed it down to the ones I liked the best, including: Ice cube typeface, Ice lolly typeface, Orange segment typeface, Lipstick typeface (which I have wanted to do for a...

Modern and Manuscript – not usually 2 words used together to describe one piece… My mini dictionary defines these to have meanings of: Modern adj. of present or recent timesManuscript n. book or document, orig, one written by hand; copy for printing When you think of manuscript, you think of old, important writing, one of a kind…. and most probably, Bible? Am I right? Well this project is going against that (well, no, it will...

I love books…. Twilight, Harry Potter, Gossip Girl, Diary of a crush…. all the typical teenage girly books. But I like to read about other things too… I confess, I go to the library quite a bit… Wisbech, Gaywood, College – I have membership to all 3 :). I am pretty sure one of the College librarians knows my name Haha. I go to the college library like once a week at least… and I...

As part of Design Studies we are doing research and projects based on Typography…. including hand renderings of type – eek! We’ve been working on these Illustrator drawn Jazz posters… which are kinda turning out a bit like work by Swiss designers such as Josef Muller-Brockmann, Emil Ruder and Armin Hoffmann, if we’re lucky that is. Chris has given us kind of a spec. table… with the typeface, alignment, size, weight, style, colour scheme and...
