These are some of the screenshots from my spatial typography moving image piece. If I had to do it again, I would try to find more resources in order to make the camera movements more smooth, but overall I believe that I have accurately communicated the sense of an expanse within the space of the AUCB library.

Here are some examples of possible typefaces my group have decided we could use for this project. The black and white image features a typeface called Navajo which I already had installed on my laptop which I think could fit in well with the aesthetic and geometric design of our posters. The others are from Behance, Creative Roots and Computer Arts Magazine. Any one of these would suffice, although my favourites are the Navajo typeface and the typeface with the mountains in the background, designed by Richard de Ruijter.

A photographer I found on flickr, the way his photos are laid out is very similar to mine. Taken a leaf out of his book.

A few more examples of Ansel Adams’ work. Apart from the difference in location and type of camera used, I can see some similarities between his work and mine.

A few examples of Ansel Adams’ work. I first discovered Ansel Adams when I visited his hometown in Yosemite in California. His haunting landscape photography is relevant to my work as the composition is one of the most important aspects of his work, and it is what makes it so unique. I’ve chosen to reference him as one of my photos in particular, a black and white postcard of a mountain by a lake, reminds me most of his work.

Tutorial I'm using to create my magazine cover

My concept for the TypeRadio brief

My concept came about when I found through the interview that Marian Bantjes is a fiercely independent designer who hates art direction, as well as living on her own island off the coast of Vancouver. It was through this sense of isolation that I considered running with the theme of ‘No Man is an Island’. This famous phrase also applies quite literally in that one of the most well-known things about Marian Bantjes is that she prefers her own company. I tried to define what makes an island an island, and found that it is a body of water and a lack of any surrounding land. I have shown this through my photos of the desert (which is often also associated with isolation due to a lack of civilisation) as well as some old photos I found which I took whilst at a camp when I was 8 or 9. To vary it, I also bought some old postcards of coastal areas which do not include any people, towns, houses etc. I’ve found that the simplicity of the work I’ve done is part of what makes it work. To make the piece more visually appealing than if it were just bodies of text with a picture next to them, I have added thin lines using a swatch of the colours in the photos in order to break it up. This has been simple yet effective.

Overall, I think I’m doing well.
