The project Typographic Portrait has come to the second week. After the artist research, I began this week by coming out of my 6 attributes.
Thus I have to more or less decided what I wanted to do. It is divided into 2 categories: my characteristics and my hobbies
For the next step, I began to try out a few sketch on these attributes. See if I have any ideas that I can expand on it.
I am a heavy Karaoke addict-er. So I decided to input my name into objects that is related to music. Such that the letters are naturally infuse into the environment. Like in this case, my name has become the shape of the teeth.
This is one is inspired by a poster done by English Markell & Pockett ( refer to below). It shows how the words streamed in projections on faces and in abstractions before spooling into the words of the programming title. So I wanted to try out this idea, that my name is spreading out/or in to music notes.
I write my names repeatedly that it forms the shape of a microphone.
For this one, I actually illustrates my names as molecules and particles. As the word “freedom” reminds me of the Brownian Motion. Where particles are able to move around freely.
The word freedom also reminds me of release, evacuate. Therefore, one of my idea is to illustrate my ideas into an evacuation guide. For this, I also research on different of fonts and typography (refer to below)
When I am free, I also watch a lot of movie. So I choose movie as one of my attributes too. For example for the above one, I actually put in a pair of 3D glasses into my name, such that the two lens form the double O of my name.
This is inspired from the game Cut the Rope. I choose this as by changing the design of the ropes, it is able to form the letters of my name. I feel that there is a lot of room to expand on.
I love CATS!! So I wanted to make this as my attributes too! I begin by illustrating how the cat image i design is to interact with the 3D forms of my names.
