(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:

Continuing research on ‘Connecting Lines’ — I wanted to look furtherĀ 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.
