The written word is one of the most effective ways to send a message. Words can persuade, entertain, sadden, inform, inspire, hurt, and even heal. Words, when combined with imagery can be even more effective at communicating a message.
Creating a Typographic Illustration
The idea behind this project is to communicate an idea that is meant to persuade, inform, entertain, inspire, etc. The underlying challenge of this assignment is to locate an image that represents the message you wish to convey within the words in which you will compose the illustration. The fonts you choose are almost as important as the words themselves. You will need to utilize tracking, leading, and even kerning in certain instances to truly enhance your illustration. Variation and contrast are the driving themes behind these designs, so remember the basic guidelines discussed in how we achieve this contrast.
Remember: The message you are trying to send is just as IMPORTANT as the design itself. Choose words and phrases that truly represent the thoughts and ideas your image might invoke in viewers. Click here for full assignment detail.
