Hall & Oates on loop every single day
Tuesday, 1 December 2009
A couple of ideas responding to a brief set as part of an intro to type. We were asked to produce a poster communicating what we perceived to be the character of a typeface. I was given Baskerville, which reminded me of a very smart, well-dressed chap. Pretty trim and dapper.
What I really like about this font are the curves and sharp edges of the serifs, which become quite abstract when looked at up close. So I based a separate poster on this.
I really miss my dog, but the other day whilst trying to find photos of my canine friend to rekindle spirits, I stumbled across the lovely cat who used to follow me down my road and then hover around the gate. I always felt a bit guilty when I'd eventually close the door on him and go and play with my dog instead. He just knew! And then one day he stopped coming, which was a bit sad. Maybe there's a bit of a cat person in me after all...
