2D: Typographic Portrait List


Create typographic portraits by using your whole name, part of your name, you nickname or your initials (with a minimum of two letters) to describe various subjects such as for example imaginary professions and/or affirmations. Each solution must consider: choice of typeface, style, size, weight, use of upper and lower case characters as well as space between the letter.


The aim of this project is to use typography as an end in itself, minimizing supporting imagery. Conceptually driven solutions and letter forms are combined with literal or abstract images to express the intended message. The outcomes address either materials, the process or a result of using specific media and technique.
