After finishing the type for the animation sign I looked at duplicating it multiple time on the page and mirroring it in rows I think doing this filled the emptiness on the page and rather than just on word floating in a page.
I took a moment to think about how the sign for the inventivity studio could be layed out I liked the idea of it being something that required some thought when assembling it like a simple puzzle.
I decided to continue with my ideas for the signs typography on the computer and tried two methods to make type the first was the use the shape of the studio and trace around it to forms letters. Continue reading Impression Studio: Project 4, Riso Show Typography further development
After receiving our brief for the Riso Show we began by creating a flat plan for how the pages need to be printed for when the catalogue is bound together. Continue reading Impression Studio: Project 4, Riso Show planning and editorial

After I had gathered enough research and had looked into different places to take the project I decided it was time to create a finished design so I began by creating a rough sketch of the design I thought would work well with a quote from the reading I ended up choosing “I am here in the middle of the swirling twirl” after sketching it out I re-created it in photoshop and illustrator to give it a very smooth and fluid appearance.

At this point of my research I started looking at makers of distorted typography I found the work in the zine Chicago by Sofia Clausse very interesting.
Work by Sofia Clausse
After looking at her work Sofia had come to give a hothouse talk at the university so I asked her about how she achieved this effect here and she told me it was by moving a page of text around as it was scanned by a photocopier so i decided I would give this a try.
Unfortunately my experiments with the photocopier were unsuccessful as you can see the effect I achieved in the copier was not much like Sofias and didn’t have as strong distortion so I decided to begin looking at other methods.
I looked abit into large scale typographic pieces and found 2 interesting images. The first is a large exhibition installation that I thought was a create example of how distorted type can be displayed in an interesting way and the second is of a poster I assume is A1 size that looked as if it was made with brush and ink.
After looking at these I made some sketches to see how my response could span over multiple pages with the idea is could be a very impressive exhibition piece but I decided against it due to the printed outcomes being required to come in editions of 5 I didn’t think something like that would be possible in the form of editions.
After screen printing made some rough drawings of how words could be overlapped in different colours but I decided to stay with the anaglyph idea as it would be much easier to print only 2 colours rather than multiple colours.
Recently we completed our screen printing workshop that was split into to sessions
In the first session we had a refresher induction to the new screen printing studio at the university. Continue reading Impression Studio: Project 3 Anthology Screen Printing Workshop
