"You forgive type. You read it around corners, because once you understand where you are; you see it at the beginning of a word, it's easy to follow" – Ellen Lupton
This is the first in a poster series I'm designing based on quotes I come across (well known or otherwise). I love things that are interactive, so the idea is to read the poster as it's folded, and as you flip and fold the poster around, the quote flows around the corners, through the front and back.
Just a fun lettering experiment project I did.
In 2013, The Dieline hosted a packaging design challenge. The challenge was to showcase our design skills by incorporating our aesthetic with the dielines they provided. I was immediately inspired by book cover design, separating the three-dimensional letters into front & back covers, and a spine. Everything is hand lettered, and since there were 7 total pieces, it allowed me to really play around with different lettering styles.
The things kids say are great. They're fun and creative. So I decided why not do some lettering designs based on them!
