TEXT FORMATTING & EXPRESSION (2 WEEKS DURATION)


Basically, this project is about creating a book of chosen sentences we choose to express and format using an article we are given with. 

The article is taken by http://www.eyemagazine.com/feature/article/first-things-first-manifesto-2000

I started off by formatting the article using left align, center align, right align and justified. I had to choose my typeface and point size of the text. I even learned to adjust the paragraph spacing and to do kern and letterspace a word or sentence.

Left Alignment:

Center Alignment:

Right Alignment:

Justified Alignment:

We continued by choosing one type of alignment to use for our final type format. I chose to use the left alignment for the overall format. We had to think about the layout of our text and which words to express in the chosen sentences we choose. We even did some research and get inspirations from other famous designers’ work specifically on typography and layout.

After getting feedback from my lecturers, I needed to think about the layout of the text and pick certain words to express in the sentence. I had to use fewer graphics to make the text stand out.

After getting more feedback on improving the consistency and similarity in the design and text, I changed some of the layouts and express a few words.

There is still some improvement in reducing the number of words to express typographically. So I have decided to re-edit my pages and pick only certain words to express. I submitted my work for re-evaluation.
