In this session I was looking at type in space that we see all the time and may not notice all the time. The majority of type was found in signage names of pubs, shops or directions.
I then sketched out a number of examples of single letters from my foundings. I really like the flushes around the “R” and the “H” it gives the characters something more about them and fancy.
We then scaled up the letters to make them about A2 in size cut them out. I chose to create the H with the vine details. Then all the letters were brought together to make a installation. The installation was very successful. It is very colourful which gives it a playful and lively quality about it. It was also put in a very public place which reflects the type we were looking at in Cardiff city center.
