Two poster concepts for an exhibition on Type in Motion to be displayed at the Zürich Museum für Gestaltung
Using the poster an
application for the exploration of generating type-images through the manual manipulation of materials—via cutting, dicing , bending, morphing, taping, etc.—lead to unexpected results. By starting with as little of a
preconceived direction, the manipulation and assembly
of materials guided the process. Rather quickly, I began focusing on
narrow slashes of material that could potentially lead to a sense of
motion through a variety of possible effects: via optical vibration,
wave patterns, shifting planes, layered segments of typography, and so
on. This process proved to lead to a variety of possibilities that were both surprising and a new take typography. The resulting images create a
physical/visceral response putting the motion in the viewer.
These posters were created during the week-long Poster Design Workshop lead by Leander Eisenmann at the Hocschule für Gestaltung und Kunst in Basel, Switzerland.
