Project Description

Type Safari

Type safari
If you like collecting and gathering the things, I'm sure you'll enjoy this project

Just Imagine you are a hunter and all the world around you, your kitchen, your home, the streets, the bus, everything around you is your hunting ground. But you are not hunting animals but TYPOGRAPHY.

Get images of anything that has type on it and drives your attention. Describe anything that you notice and find interesting:

  1. name Influences
  2. Ask yourself if it is appropriate for its function?
  3. What do you think about it? How does it make you feel?
  4. Would you do it in a different way? If yes, HOW?
  5. Or anything that you would like to comment

Comment as many elements as you like, upload images and comments or just paste a link to a screen cast from Youtube, Vimeo or what ever you prefer.
this exercise will develop your analytic capabilities and that will come very useful when producing your own work.

Good Hunting!
