Overall this project was amazing. It helped me understand you can make anything out of nothing but there’s always something there. It was great hunting for elements to use for typefaces i hope someone out there can use mines one day.

Steph Balloqui / Project 5 / Deliver

I found this project really hard due to the lack of inspiration around me- Although font and typeface projects are usually always my weakest. I really had a hard time capturing what I was seeing.

DRIP- I used white-out to capture that texture of plaster
OOOOO- I used red paint and small dots of white-out to capture my wall with paint splatter on it
OOPS- I used hair dye and black paint

Old Harlem Typeface:

Process: This was originally taken from sided of my refrigerator (quite old). Zoomed in and contrasted heavily, I began to see letters similar to those in alphabet soup or old graffitti (if you look, you will see plenty of letters). The roughness of the shape reminded me of late 70s, early 80s graffitti. I called it the “Old Harlem” typeface because it seems like it would not be out of place for those times.

Schism Typeface:

Process: This was taken from peeled paint on my front door. The letters remind me of schizophrenic madness.

Venom Typeface:

Process: Honestly, I looked all over and cannot remember what this was a picture of!! All I know is that after using the processing technique from our previous project, some letters started to form. These letter forms immediately reminded me of a comic book character called Venom (anyone familiar with Spider-Man knows who this is). Though the fonts actually used for his name are different, I believe that my typeface more accurately captures the essence of who/what Venom is. The letters even resemble his features.

 

This project has really helped me to, not so much think outside the box, but to think WITHOUT a box.
