Art shows featuring multiple artists typically provide an opportunity to work in a broad conceptual spectrum. The University of the District of Columbia’s 2017 faculty exhibition titled “Current” offered the chance to push typographic boundaries and break some “design rules” along the way. Taking inspiration from Adrian Frutiger, David Carson and stylistic cues from the Dada art movement; I coupled a sense of motion with a process that reflected the concept of time. An abstract palimpsest background reinforces the idea of past/present and is paired with a dynamic typographic composition full of rhythmic contrast. Together the elements provide a visual that speaks to the dual nature of the word “Current” and an aesthetic that represents the varied faculty disciplines.
