Trying Out Typefaces

ASSIGNMENT 4

MY INITIALS (AEW)

Here we go…

COPY!

This was hard! My hands are not steady enough to draw smooth lines. My worst grades in elementary school were in handwriting class. Can you tell? :)

How do I improve my handwriting? Practice, practice, and more practice? Anything else I can do?

ASSIGNMENT 3

LOGOS

I just returned from a short stay in the Catskills. I stayed at The Roxbury, my new favorite motel. The overall design was quite unified, from their logo to the numbers they put on each door. It's a fun, modern take on retro motels. Love love loved this place.

Upon first arriving, the signage made me feel:

1. That the motel is a little retro, with the green and orange colors

2. That the motel is a little designy, with the bold black and white touches, and the placement of the motel name at just the right spacing below the simple illustration of the Catskills

3. That the motel has a view of the mountains (which is why we travel to the Catskills, right?) and that I can expect a good view of sunrise and sunset

Also, I'm a fan of the VICE brand. Their TV shows, albums, etc. are always edgy and entertaining to me. I like how their logo is simple, and can be placed on top of any color or pattern and still remains recognizable, similar to MTV's logo.

The font looks like grafitti, which is appropriate for VICE's young (naive?), grassroots approach to news and media.

ASSIGNMENT 2

PRACTICE WITH KERNING

How did I do?

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

FUN USE OF FONTS:

Modern Times Beer. The design is bright, with retro colors and curly lettering, but mostly modern. Makes me want to drink! Looks like fun :P
