Type as a Form of Communication

Presentation on How to Communicate Effectively With Type – PART 1


Destruction

  • An accepted wisdom states that 90% of the creative process is destructive.

Destruction


Destruction removal

  • 90% of the creative process is removing information and simplifying a message. I would call this the removal of noise!

As a result:

90% of the creative process is removing noise.

Destruction = Removal


Content

On the following pages we will cover:

  • Context

  • Task 1 – Research

  • Task 2 – Make an informed decision

Content


The context

  • Everything exists in a context.

  • From Latin contextusputting together; it means: the circumstances in which an event occurs; a setting (from: www.thefreedictionary.com)

  • Think of someone coughing. What could that mean? The person may be sick, someone around may be smoking, the person may have swallowed a substance accidentally. To understand the reason for the cough we need to look at the context.

The Context


The context1

  • Text is information with visual clues and needs to relate to a context.

  • When choosing a typeface think first about the context

  • What subject or cause does the text relate to?

  • Who is your client or who is represented by the text?

The Context


The context2

  • Which of the font choices below relate the best to the context?

The Context


The context3

You need to learn what style of typeface suits what context and increase your font sensitivity! Learn about :

  • Genres, eg Film Genres, Game Genres, …

  • Eras (The Roaring 20s, Late 60s, 80s, our time)

  • Art Movements (eg Italian Futurism, Russian Constructivism, German Expressionism, Art Deco, Art Nouveau, etc)

  • Graphic Design Styles (International or SwisseStyle, Punk, Deconstructivism)

  • Themes, Styles and Subcultures (Football, Rugby, UFC, Wrestling, Tennis, Heavy Metal, Punk, Ska, …)

The Context


Task 1

  • Use Google and collect 5 images as examples of titles for the following:

  • Wild West movie title

  • Sci-Fi movie or book title

  • Film Noir film title

  • Wedding Day or Wedding Invite

  • 70s retro/revival night

  • Collect your examples in a basic PowerPoint show with a title for each section and the samples arranged in one slide per theme/genre.

Task 1


Task 2

  • Choose 3 typefaces for titles for the following:

  • Wild West movie title

  • Sci-Fi movie or book title

  • Film Noir film title

  • Wedding Day or Wedding Invite

  • 70s retro/revival night

    You might need to install some fonts on your computer first. I recommend to get free fonts from www.dafont.com Visit this tutorial to learn how to Install Fonts in Mac OS X Install Fonts in Windows 7

  • Place your examples in a basic PowerPoint show with a title for each section and the samples arranged in one slide per theme/genre.
