scale, contrast and other visual elements. Displayed are examples of
the advanced stages including varying weights & size points, rules &
shapes and finally color integration.

Type 2: Structure / Weekly Exercises / Spring 2017



Special Thanks to:
Carla Barr & Jon Hsiung.

Tools used:
Ps / InDesign

Stage 6 / Size & Weight Variations

 

Creating hierarchy and movement with different point sizes and varying weights
in a single composition.

Stage 7 / Rules and Shapes

 

Integrating geometric shapes such as circles, squares and rules to call for attention in certain elements or create interesting compositions with movement. Playing with assymetry and balance to create a richer story.

Stage 8 / Color

 

Color used as a tool to create emphasis, or make a composition richer both visually and conceptually.

Stage 8 / Imagery & Photography

 

Photography and imagery was used to create context and contrast.
Photographs by some of the artists featured in this book were chosen to stay
in the theme of avant-garde design. This stage is still in progress.
