we love typography

These are the things I’ve found @welovetypography.

I like the Mosi type so much. The other one is a shorthand letter from 1859.

my new toys

Today I went to a Muji store by chance. I saw these illustration pens and woodcut print letters stuff.

I am trying to solve to use these pens, because I can’t mix the colors with each other at the moment. ( Actually I don’t have any colored pen, just black and white, because they were expensive relative to my budget. Muji is an expensive store in Turkey ?!?!!?) So, I tried to draw sketches with the help of charcoal.

Woodcut print stuff is a good start for me. I think I will carve bigger letters with different typefaces, when I have free time.

After I bought the books and these things, I think I should not go to shopping for a long time (:

helvetica movie

A clip from the feature-length documentary Helvetica, by Gary Hustwit.

Helvetica is a feature-length independent film about typography, graphic design and global visual culture. It looks at the proliferation of one typeface as part of a larger conversation about the way type affects our lives. Helvetica has been shown at over 200 film festivals, museums, design conferences, and cinemas worldwide.

Typography Assignment 3

These are designed for VA 234, typography course. The first one is an asymmetrical and unbalanced design, because the black and white parts have different sizes and, the directions of the texts are different. The second design is  balanced because of the placement of the texts.
