Patterns Revised

I revised some of the patterns I did for my Type class and I think the came out a lot better this time. I was not happy with all of them before.

I'm still trying to get pictures up of my project for The Lab. Hopefully those will be up soon.

I'm in a DIY class where we have to make a product and sell it MICA's Art Market in December. I've been making little masks to put on pins, necklaces and headbands and I'd like to post pictures of my progress but my camera is dumb. Hopefully I'll get it working soon and I'll have some things to show. We've been doing some letterpress and Gocco in class and I got to Gocco my logo onto little tags for my pieces.

I'll post full pictures of the tags later.

I'm going to Jo-Ann's tomorrow to buy more fabric because I don't like the colors I picked last time. So to make sure I don't waste money I made several color combinations and then made a palette with the colors I want to purchase. I then numbered how many times each color appears in my combinations so that I know which ones are the most important to buy in case I have to cut back.

I like the way this looks. I'd love to make a poster of this. It reminds me of a skin project we did freshmen year where we had to pick out as many colors as we could in our skin and create something with them. I wish I had done this. Maybe I will in my spare time. I've got some extra money on my flex account this year so I could splurge at the print lab. Oh how I love the print lab. It's so satisfying to print.

Patterns with Type

In my type class, which is sometimes extremely painful, we had to create patterns using a single letter from a single font. First our patterns were executed in black and white and then later translated into color. I made two color versions for each pattern. Here's my series:

A lowercase A in Futura

An uppercase G in Helvetica

A uppercase D in Helvetica
