I spent the majority of this week re-drawing my triangle character designs in Illustrator – from here I was able to work within specific parameters in terms of the shape, size, colour etc and lay out each character to create the finished letraset sheet. Being the perfectionist that I seem to be at times, this […]Read more "From concept to final product: ‘TriType’"
The triangle typeface is going fairly well: I’ve used a equilateral triangles with 2cm sides as the basic shape for each letter and I’ve added smaller triangles (about 5mm sides) and cuts into each shape to define the characteristics of each letter. Also, in response to our Research and Comms’ lecture on Tuesday, I thought […]Read more "Triangle Typeface/My first videoblog attempt…"

The Trebuchet typeface was created by Vincent Connare […]Read more "Lauching words across the internet"

Following our first meeting with the lecturers for our discipline, we have been asked to present our own work and also show images/items/etc which we find inspirational. In thinking about inspirational materials, I’ve found that it’s an area I’ve never really explicitly thought about before. Of course, I look through design magazines and archive websites […]Read more "Inspirations…"
