  • “Lettermark”*
    • purpose/objective:
      • To understand the demands of developing and executing a mark that is based on letterforms and to incorporate curves.
      • To experiment with negative/positive space relationships.
      • To explore the concept of reduction while designing a mark.
    • assignment: Focusing on contrast and figure/ground relationship (positive and negative shapes), design a visually interesting logotype that intergrates the initials of your first and last na,es (two letters) into a unified whole. The letters should be based initially on these five typefaces: Garamond, Baskerville, Bodini, Century Expanded, and Helvetica. The lettermark must contain curves and the letter must “read” in consequtive order: first initial first, then the last initial. You may incorporate either serif or sans serif, uppercase or lowercase, roman or italic, condensed or expanded, bold of light, or a combination of any two. Black and White only.
    • format: Execute one design for each of the above themes.
      • sketches: black and white only (no pencil; black marker is ideal); any size sketch is ok – the ideal is to have one sheet of paper with multiple squares/sketches on it; use black marker on white paper; 8.5” x 11” paper will work fine)
      • final lettermark design in two formats: to be handed in digitally as both an illustrator file (.ai) and an image (.gif); document setup: CMYK, 8.5” x 11”)
  • *assignment adapted from:
    • Susan Merritt’s Lettermark assignment – San Diego State Universitysource: Resnick, Elisabeth. Design for Communication: Conceptual Graphic Design Basics. Hoboken, NJ John Wiley & Sons. Pp.43-48
