A blog about me, my doings and everything I think deserves attention.

more typography

Yeah, I couldn’t help it. Some more fall out of my typography class beneath.

First a little poster with a little critic about our set destination in life:

The second work is very (as in extremely or obsessively) minimalistic, focussed on used space (and the fonts):

Antisocial Personality Disorder

antisocial 500 Antisocial Personality Disorder

Recently, one of my teachers generalised people with high IQ and a bad personality as sociopaths, which often is used as a synonymous for the Antisocial Personality Disorder (ASPD). I think this is a flat description of it, so I decided to make a little something for my typography class about it. I wanted to go for an informal, yet dark theme and keep it simple stupid, like informal material, only with striking sub-headlines and another colour scheme. The text are the official criteria from the Diagnostic and Statistical a of Mental Disorders. Final word: I don’t judge people suffering from ASPD, it’s a mental disorder, nothing they just do because it’s fun.

vector posters

We’re having design basics at the academy right now, so the lessons are awesome. For one assignment we had to take an ad or a design we liked and re-create. I chose Anorexia by *UncleMontezuma on deviantART.

Here is my outcome:

Second assignment due to today was to create an advertisement for a company. (I know, I’m not selling a product on my poster, but nobody said anything about products. Governmental institutions and help organisations are close to companies in many ways.) For my design and message I wanted something very clean and easy to understand. I especially watched out for repetition of the scale, information, typography and minimal, but meaningful use of colour:

First Vector with Illustrator

sunglass card 500 First Vector with Illustrator

It wasn’t a big difference to producing a card in Inkscape, but getting used to keybindings and menu hierarchies just takes its time I guess. The picture was taken by me on a boat trip. The cards are (home)printed and delivered icon wink First Vector with Illustrator

The path tool in Illustrator works pretty well, but all the tool switching is a little irritating. I also haven’t figured out how to display paths permanently, but the manual awaits me.
