Today was my first ever day of doing typography. we started by cutting out different forms of letters and then looking at what every one else had done as well. I find this helpful as its inspiring to see what other people have created and you can then use it on your own work. We then created a word from typography to which we then had to photograph as well. I liked my word as I also used coloured card, which lifted the piece, however my setting for my word didn't match, and therefore I felt it let the final piece down. My photography skills is something that I am hoping to work on during my time at CSM.
During the week we had made stencils for a poster that we were to screen print. we did this by taking a letter from our work on Monday and then adapting it, into two layers for a red and a black fill. We then printed on Friday, which I found easy as I had done screen printing at secondary school and college. I was happy with the way my design turned out however it could have been neater so that I didn't have any white edges. typography is something that I definitely want to return too, as I enjoyed adapting my ideas and exploring different ways of presenting letters.
