LCC Day One
In class we got our first project brief — to find type in our environments, photograph it, and create a collective type specimen book with these materials. Our prof brought in just part of his extensive type specimen collection, which was very inspiring to look through and explore.
Afterwards, we were told to take a piece of paper, fold it into four squares, and go out and find letterforms to draw in those squares. We were to draw them “perfectly” and to examine their every detail carefully. I sat down on the floor downstairs in LCC’s current art exhibit and explored some geometric typefaces. I enjoyed this exercise a lot and was pretty happy about how my letterforms turned out for sitting on the floor without a hard surface to write on or a ruler!
