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.

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

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

  • emphasis
  • movement
  • pattern
