Part 1: DIGITAL
1. For each of our classic typefaces, choose a single letterform on which to concentrate.
2. Place this letterform on a 6" x 6" composition, taking note of its relationship to the negative space.
3. Increase the scale of the letterform, focusing in on a specific detail, a specific characteristic of the typeface. Repeat for a total of four designs for each letterform. You will produce a total of 20 designs, 4 for each of our 5 classic typefaces.
4. Post each of these to your blog, group by typeface, in either ascending or descending scale. These designs should be posted to your blog by midnight Monday, August 29th.
Part 2:HAND DRAWN
Choose the same letterform in the same case you used in part one to draw in each of our five classic typefaces. Draw not the entire letterform, but instead draw the same zoomed in detail for each typeface. You should make five drawings of the zoomed in details, in five different typefaces for a total of five drawings. You will create 5 drawings total. Although it did not matter for our first set of drawings, these letterforms should be solid ("colored in") ("shaded in") ("filled in"), providing contrast between their forms and counters. Please label each drawing with the typeface, the letter, and your name. These should grouped together and should be posted to wall in the glass hallway no later than midnight Monday, August 29th.
