Image in Text
GRAPHIC DESIGN & EXPERIMENTAL TYPOGRAPHY
Experimental typography opened my eyes to the world of text in graphics. This piece was a unique work of art that utilizes only text to create a portrait image. After writing a personal essay in journalistic form, I took this text as the foundation for the words put together on the piece. This text was designed and placed in hundreds of layers, sizes, weights, and forms. The specific placement and text manipulation creates the portrait. It was then printed on a large canvas for display.
