T4 MORE Typographic Experimentation

This go round I really pushed myself to establish some sort of 'rule' for what I am doing and to ultimately define the negative space that creates the abstract letterforms. The individual images state what their 'rule' is and how I approached it, as well as, the typeface I was working from. In this round I was able to develop relationships between the forms that I created, hence the arrows.


Here I pushed the idea to words to see how they might interact with each other and how space can be defined with the forms that develop between the letters.


I attempted to work on the computer to develop this type of stuff and unfortunately lost some time in doing so. There is not near the freedom and ability to work quickly while manipulating forms, the only upside what the ability to scale and overlay more accurately.

  1. smart idea to set a complete word to check relationships. that definitely puts it in an everyday context. it would probably be smart to continue in that manner so you can work quickly. then if you find some ideas you like, you could do a complete alphabet.

    let's talk more about the lower left idea -- the bodoni bold. i have some ideas on how that could be made into a typeface pretty easily.
