- leave negative space?
- fill page?
- dynamic shapes and lines of words
- use a letter as an outline – like Garamond poster; having info inside
- b&w – let the type look good
- small amount of writing
After researching different type specimens and photos, I started designing what my poster could look like. Palatino is an easy to read, perhaps corporate font that is often used for newspapers, book and logos. I want to show of my typeface in an experimental way – like the posters in my research – but have a minimalist look to it so that it really shows of the type. My main ideas are having the ‘P’ as a really dominant letter and the rest of the words fitting around it. I like the idea of have the letters overlapping each other, having the word read from top to bottom.
The poster has to be created in InDesign but I will use Illustrator to experiment with the positioning on letters and composition of the overall typography because I am a lot more confident using Illustrator.
