Word and Image

So this semester I am taking a Word and Image class which is basically if Typography 1 and Illustration had a baby class. So the illustration elements of pictures that tell stories meshed with the design of adding words. Our first assignment was to create our own typeface, which proved to be a little harder and time-consuming than expected. We were also urged to use a tool other than the traditional pencil or marker to create our type. I made my alphabet using a screw, giving it that uneven creepy look.

Our second assignment for this class was to take a word that described our font, blow it up, and make an illustration inside the word. I chose the word "Frightful".
