I’ve been experimenting well, especially this week, I’m stoked with how they all turned out.

Typography – T04 – T06

These past few weeks have been interesting, Getting the hang of the experimentation side of design, taking the text of a weather forecast and utilising it to show principles of design.

T04

The first 2 were from the first assignment, I didn’t have a clue what I was doing, My design is ok but I missed the point of the exercise completely.

For the next weeks you have to create a layout of the weather forecast in one 400px square canvas. Use only the text supplied.

Create a cover page. This week you can work using any size, weight or style of typeface.

  • Do not repeat the text
  • Type always has to be black
  • Don‘t use any distortion
  • Don‘t use any effects: strikethrough, dropshadow, etc
  • Don‘t hyphenate the text or cut characters off by the side

T05

The next weeks I start to get the idea but really very little experimentation going on.

Create a layout of the weather forecast in one 400px square canvas. Use only the text supplied.

Create a cover page. This week you have to work in three different layouts, one for each design principle, and using as typeface «Open Sans regular 10 pt» and with 3 principles of design: 

  • scale
  • balance
  • contrast

T06

Then I really start to experiment, they don’t necessarily look all that great but they do show what I’m trying to get across. I’ve definitely come a long way in a short time with my ideating.

Lay out three completely different weather reports using only Open Sans 10 point and Open Sans Bold 10 point with 3 principles of design:
