Presentation on How to Communicate Effectively With Type – PART 1

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

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 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, …)
