Title: It Could Be Worse
Class: Design 3
Project title and Requirement: Poster of Object with Type from Object of Interest (POOTFOOT)

Students were asked to pick 10 objects of influence (things that were important to them). They narrowed that down to their top pick and then designed a font based on that. They were then asked to create a poster using an original image and their type face, that embodied that object and why it was important to them. The poster was to feel like a self portrait in essence without actually being a traditional self portrait.


Media: Digital Print
Scale:. 16 x 12″
Artist statement: 

It Could Be Worse
is a poster made to reflect the concept behind the typeface I created. When I was first given this assignment, I was having a hard coming up with an idea. I had a creative ‘block,’ and that is where the idea came from – each form in this typeface is determined by the letter that follows it. My choices for colour palette and background photo were intuitive aesthetic decisions that I felt where complementary to my type and phrase I chose.
