After discovering Project 1 will be mainly on typography, I was a little excited, but also panicking slightly!

I didn’t have much knowledge on TYPOGRAPHY so I googled and went on pinterest to know more about it, and for inspiration!

Typography basically a style of arranging text. It can come in so many different forms such as arranging different icons/visuals to form text and even creating a whole new style of font. laughing

Reference Artists/ Inspirations

For further exploration, I looked up different font styles and below are few which inspired me!


Typography on music notes


Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia-based art director who made the music note-inspired typeface

I was then inspired to try and spell my name with this font!



Human Typography


I am really passionate in film and photography, and when I first saw this I was so amazed. I love it! This is really creative, to use just our natural bodies to form alphabets. A great idea, and this has inspired me to include bodily gestures (in yoga).


Type Photography


Peter Defty produced amazing typography through the framing and composition of architecture in his photographs

 (Yes this was introduced to the class in my group’s presentation)

This piece is inspiring to me as it made me realise that alternatively to creating new fonts, we can make fonts out of already present things, and in Peter’s case, architechture. He makes use of negative space to create alphabets, opening many of our eyes to appreciate things in another way now 🙂
