PROJECT 1

THE LETTERFORM

The following is placeholder text known as “lorem ipsum,” which is scrambled Latin used by designers to mimic real copy. Vivamus sit amet semper lacus, in mollis libero. Quisque congue porttitor ullamcorper. Suspendisse nec congue purus. Quisque congue porttitor ullamcorper.

Vestibulum ante ipsum primis in faucibus orci luctus et ultrices posuere cubilia Curae. Donec eget risus diam. Nulla lectus ante, consequat et ex eget, feugiat tincidunt metus. Vivamus sit amet semper lacus, in mollis libero. Mauris id fermentum nulla. Vestibulum ante ipsum primis in faucibus orci luctus et ultrices posuere cubilia Curae.

EXPRESSIVE WORD

Give a piece of typography appropriate form based on its content. Choose four words from the lists below (or come up with your own). In four different compositions, arrange each word to express its meaning (one word per composition). The composition is 8" x 8" square. Execute it in Adobe Illustrator. You may vary the size, spacing, placement, and orientation of the letters. To achieve the desired effect, avoid simply repeating the words or creating an illustration from the letter forms. The best solutions not only enhance the word’s meaning but are clever and aesthetically pleasing. Sometimes an unexpected effect can be achieved when the typographic solution contradicts the meaning of the word, setting “big” with small type, for example. Use the typeface Futura PT Bold. You can download Futura PT Bold from Adobe Typekit.
