THE MEDIUM IS THE MESSAGE
This particular experience is a lettering "warm-up and renewal" for level 3 students before delving into more complex work in word design . I particularly enjoy the art of lettering and I feel it is very important that the skill of hand lettering and its design is not forgotten or lost.
Here, a word was to be chosen for illustration. For extra credit (due to a time factor) the same word was to be extended into a message continuing the word's style and personification or changing it. Letter characterizations could have any personality: serious, humorous, informational, political, etc. All media were open and here are some results.
Construction paper, marker, poster painted, and white and blue ink lettering with a collage made this concept about a difficult task.
Body-fitting letters for the first word evolve into a large carnival type font in the message. Utilizing both an elegant Legend and a heavy western styles suggest fashion is both elegant and fun.
From neutral tones to color, Times Roman, poster and Legend fonts describe the magnifying glass as a tool for closeup inspection.
