For my next project I’m going to produce a typographic moving piece of curated footage using original sound. Witch I am very exited about! Right now I have approximately zero ideas so to just begin practicing hand rendering type, I wrote a poem about my right eye that’s been annoying me this week and illustrated it using typefaces I found in my new and amazing book “Type Team” by Tony Seddon. I’ve been flicking through this book so much already, it’s really inspiring!
What I learned from this process though was that it takes A LOT of time drawing type! As this was a test, I didn’t really bother with getting everything perfectly straight and the tracking could definitely be improved but regardless I like what I produced as my poem now looks like a piece of art. Definitely worth taking into consideration though how much time it takes to draw type when I’m choosing my text for this project. Can’t make it too long..
