Im reading a lot of various books/magazines etc about various graphic design subjects. Im mostly still dead set on going all out on learning computer software trickery with an army of tutorials and cool stuff to get my head round. but one of the thing si stumbled accross was this typographer david carson
his works really cool i think, specially this really early stuff. it kinda goes against all the guidelines of classic typography but i like it to see type as image, and how imperitive elements and message still [mostly] get accross. he said some cool stuff in his interview too...
quite a cool idea that. ill save that for another day I dont think this concept would work in the next 100 page PDF project next term
def up for reading that paper tho
i deeply hate that photo on the left.ah!im irritated thinkng about it
but i reall like the rest of it!
so cool digital work. i need to embrace and absorb more things like this
or do i?
yeah love it!am all over this!
nice colour, n simple.
its that kind of edgy hand made edge i love
my digital work and hand made work need a wedding.soon.
YEAH!this is insane! you gta love it! you would certainly investigate whatever this is
SO in his interview he made some good points. this is what i took most from it...
- Embrace "Lucky Disasters" in your working process
- Start with a GENERAL DIRECTION-but you have to be prepared/ABLE to do things along the way YOU WERNT EXPECTING
- throw it on the ground, ADD RANDOM ELEMENT.-BUT IT MUST HAVE RELEVANCE
- ask yourself-when you look at things that inspire you or otherwise WHAT DO I GET FROM THAT?
- its easier to do a classic style, to play it safe...its harder to do expressive work AND DO IT WELL
- CROP!enlarge photo zoom in
- its not about the tools ITS GOT TO COME FROM THE INDIVIDUAL
- THE ONLY WAY YOU CAN DO ANYTHING UNIQUE OR DIFFERENT is to UTILISE YOURSELF!
- convey the state of mind NOT JUST THE TEXT
