Project 1: Que Sera, Sera- Research

For our first project, we have to use typography to express our future jobs by exploring with different material and techniques.

What is typography?
Typography is the style and appearance of printed matter.

First, there is 3D typography:

I find this really interesting and appealing!

An artist reference for 3D typography would be Chris Labrooy who is a freelance designer and illustrator based in the UK. He experiments in typography and 3D font projects which are really interesting an eye-catching due to his excellent use of colour and bold statements. I really like how bright and clear everything is in his works!

More of this vibrant works can be found on: http://www.chrislabrooy.com/

Secondly, there is handmade typography as well, which to me is the usage of different mediums to create something.

I actually really like watercolour typography as it gives a clean look and it can be varied very differently for each. I may look into the medium of watercolour as I am really drawn to it and i want to try something new as well 😛

Another artist reference would be Hannah Hoch who was a German Dada artist. She is best known for her work of the Weimar period, when she was one of the originators of photomontage. Her photomontage are all very interesting as they vary in sizes which comes off as a totally new image forming a different meaning when you see it as a whole.

After researching, I still don’t have a definite idea or medium to use, but i would like to explore materials to make my work potentially slightly 3D or maybe using brighter colours to bring out the jobs i have chosen.
