The objective of this project is to obtain a better understanding of Font and Typography in design by creating a visual through text. Utilizing font types effectively is an extremely important aspect of digital media.
Choose either The Epic of Gilgamesh or Noah and the Flood. Look carefully through the story that you choose and pull out 50 - 75 words that you think are most powerful and most useful in creating the mood and tone. Download various fonts from dafont.com and use creative placement and layout, as well as various sizes of the words to create a graphic that describes the tone of the story through words. The image can use words to form a main word or a symbolic shape. Use a different font for each word.
As you work, save your project as a .psd and name it lastname + first initial + type.psd. When you are finished, save it again as a JPEG with the same name (ex: pettywtype.jpg) Submit the .JPG file using the form on the right.
