From the previous post, I mentioned my attraction and interest on the technique of News Overprint. So this post will hold a slightly in-depth portion on my research throughout the project.
(above) I used these images as an example of how I could incorporate designs into my own book page.
(above) I used these images to help me have an idea how I want to make the typography stand out within the designs in the book page. I thought alot of contrast between bold and light, negative space etc.
(above) I refer to Sol LeWitt’s wall drawing line works to see how I could portray my personality by using just lines.
There are other resources that I came across with that I found to be interesting to add on as an inspiration:
The third image uses the same word throughout the work “HA”. The bold effect allows one to actually see what the message is, with its background faded.
The 2 images below consists of Pinterest research on artist Kurt Schwitters on his collage works and the technique of Ephemera:
Continuing research on ‘Connecting Lines’ — I wanted to look further from Sol LeWitt’s line works, example: on how I could use these lines to form shapes or typography?
And after these research, I’d try it out myself to see if it suits with the vocation or personality I chose.

I really like your resource on virtual typography as well as ephemera…
remember that metaphor and similes will allow you to communicate in more expressive way and to emphasize certain aspects of what you want to say about yourself…
I can use this for my lectures!
