The “Welcome” sign is a good example of typography because it is all one font and all one color. It is the main focus of the art piece and there is great contrast between the white letters and the brown wood background. This pillow is a good example of using color to help with balance… Continue Reading →

My favorite game was type war out of all of them because it was a very strait forward way to identify the different typography. I played that game the majority of the time and got up to around 50-60 points playing. I also liked shot the serif because it was the most like an actual… Continue Reading →

Brief review of typography game experience.

Kern Type

Having played this game before; I found myself doing a lot better than I had in the past.

Type War

The website stopped working after playing for about 30 minutes. I would say I had intermediate font identifying skill.

Type Connection

Great game for seeing how fonts work well together. I think I will use this as a tool in the future.

Photo demonstration of five basic design concepts:

Balance

The statue sits perfectly between the two pillars at its back. The building is cropped proportionally and sits well vertically and horizontally.

Rhythm

Though not beautifully or perfectly art-directed, this is a fine example of rhythm, as the desk snakes between chairs and monitors that sit evenly from each other down a line.

Unity

The geometry of the glass demonstrates architectural unity.

Proportion

The proportion of one staircase to the next gives depth and a bit of optical awkwardness, asking the eye to almost run down the stairs and feel smaller as it does.

Use of Space

This photo uses white space to draw attention to the lone chair (helped by its color).

This art piece would be considered symmetrical balance because the composition is visually equal on all sides. Although different fonts are used, the words are evenly weighted on the platform. This pillow is an excellent example of minimalism or dead space. The lowercase font and small words are centered on the pillow case leaving most […]

Kern Type is the first game that I was challenged with. My overall score was 74, which I was pleasantly surprised with. Kerning tests your eyesight. I thought I had perfect vision until today. Although I achieved a perfect score several times, I was frustrated when I had the letters off-centered. This activity is a […]
