Class: Design + Layout

Assignment: Using the the supplied collateral (photo, copy and logo), create a layout based on shapes promoting tourism to Thailand.

Design Process: Using triangles, I wanted to bring emphasis to an iconic Thai symbol supplied.

Didot Poster (website)-03.png

Class: Typography

Assignment: Research a typeface and the typographer who created it. Showcase the typeface (along with history and design) in a poster. Poster should be stylized to match the typeface. Didot was created in 1781, but is currently used as the typeface for the cover of Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar. This poster was created to look like a magazine spread in honor of that fact.

Design process: After learning that Didot is the Vogue masthead typeface, I decided to use fashion magazine design as inspiration. I used a recent Vogue magazine image for colors. I aligned the middle “d” with the image frame, caption and paragraph indent and the “est. 1781” with the bottom of the image frame.

By rotating and change the values of the leaves, I was able to create a sense of movement. Plus - Helvetica!
