Typefaces Workshop

Today the year 1 graphics students we set the task of creating 8 faces out of letterforms, 5 human & 3 animals. Here are a section of some of their characters.

Staff were impressed with some of the results and have now tasked the students to take the project further by refining and developing more faces for Thursday's final crit session.

Students were encouraged to look at the positive and negative spaces between the type forms as well as using scale, proportion and balance in their designs.
