The Chicago High School for the Arts
Advanced Graphic Design
Students were given pieces of paper with their names printed in a single type face at a variety of sizes. They used viewfinders to crop the letters down, exploring figure/ground relationships by abstracting the typography into shapes rather than letter. Students scanned the results and refined them in photoshop before printing them out as 13″ squares. They were encouraged to find unique ways to connect to display the pieces as one.
