Typography Challenges?Hi :iconsmallwaveplz:Typography Challenges? by pica-ae
I've come to you today, to talk about challenges over CRTextAndTypography. In not as regular intervals as I liked to, I have been posting Typography Challenges for everyone to take part in. Unfortunately the responses have been less than … sufficient and decreasing over time. So here's me talking about challenges and trying to figure out how to bring them back to life. Preferably improved and better (There are questions at the end, please take the time to answer them )
Are you interested in challenges at all? The last one only had one entry and it has me thinking that you are not interested in challenges anyway. So here I am wondering if I should take the time and effort to find ideas for challenges, write a journal about it, set up the submission rules in the backroom and decline the masses of submissions to the group that don't read the rules and just submit "whatever" to a specific challenge folder.
Why you should take part in a
Picture Interpretation ChallengeWelcome to the next challenge of CRTextAndTypographyPicture Interpretation Challenge by pica-ae
This is a series of recurring, but maybe irregular typography related challenges for everyone to take part in. They will have a start and end date and each deviation must be submitted to dA after the start date. Only deviations created with each challenge in mind will be accepted.
Please remember this is a challenge, not a contest, there are no prizes to win.
This is mostly a source of "jobs" that you can do I could be more cheesy and say the prize will be finding out how awesome friendship is … but … oh well.
Here we go!
Picture Interpretation Challenge
How often do you look around your environment or at pictures and photos and think "Oh this object, its shape totally looks like a letter!" ? I am sure this happens to all of us and this challenge is exactly about that feeling!
This challenge is all about taking inspiration from a picture and create typography from it.
Trajan Replacement ChallengeAs there are only 3 entries so far, the deadline will be extended to November 30th 2013!Trajan Replacement Challenge by pica-ae
Welcome to the next challenge of CRTextAndTypography
This is a series of recurring, but maybe irregular typography related challenges for everyone to take part in. They will have a start date and end date and each deviation must be submitted after the start date. Only deviations created with each challenge in mind will be accepted.
So without further ado, I present the:
Trajan Replacement Challenge
The main objective of this challenge is to evaluate the appropiate interaction between meaning, words, lettering and typefaces. The goal is to create a type treatment, or typographical logo, that focuses on one word or phrase as its main focus.
The idea is to find a movie or tv show logo that uses Trajan and give it a possibly more appropiate type treatment instead. You will find Trajan is used in a lot of movies and it has sort of become "The Hollywood Font".
The Paintbucket Challenge[Reminder] There are only a couple of days left to enter this challenge! The deadline is July 31st 2013. Sooo, get your paintbuckets out and draw me some lettersThe Paintbucket Challenge by pica-ae
For inspiration you may want to take a look at the Paint Bucket Challenge folder and see what others users have submitted.
You can find the rules below
Welcome to the first challenge of this group! The goal of these is to spark your interested in typography and to breed some new typographers Of course, the challenges are open for all levels of experience. I will try to keep them simple in the rules and hope for creative results from the community.
The Paintbucket Challenge
The idea of this challenge is to create some fancy letters using only a template with a grid on it and the Paintbucket tool to fill the grid's shapes. I got this idea from betteo who hosted the original <a href="http://fav.me/d209ypf">
How to design a typeface (Part 1)How to design a typeface (Part 1)How to design a typeface (Part 1) by MartinSilvertant
Sans serif — Roman
In this article/tutorial I will show you how to design a typeface. I will cover the basics and show you how to design advanced letters as well. There is so much I can talk about though, so if people like this article I might expand on this with future articles and get more into detail. I will only cover the design though, so you will have to research how to do the spacing and programming and turn your typeface into a usable font—or wait until I might do an article on that as well, but I don’t have such an article planned anytime soon.
What will we design?
I will first show you how to design some basic letters for a geometric sans typeface like Futura, because it utilizes geometric shapes, which is always my starting point for every typeface regardless of style. O
TypeBattle: AboutAboutTypeBattle: About by Ikue
We think a little competition is good for the creative process and inspired by sites like Lettering Vs Calligraphy we thought it a good idea to mimic this fighting style on deviantART. Interested? Keep reading!
Two fighters are given a theme, this can be anything from a colour, to a quote. Anyone can battle and throw down with any other typography artist on deviantART.
The fighters pick their weapon, be it digital or traditional and then get to work! They have 1 week to forge their weapon and submit it to the group then an extra week for review and the community votes.
At the end of the battle the fighter with the best weapon wins. That fighter will be given a championship belt and has bragging rights over his opponent. How many rounds can you go?
Votes are based off of comments, favs, and a poll for each battle. The fi
History of Roman typefacesHistory of Roman typefacesHistory of Roman typefaces by MartinSilvertant
Typefaces are our instruments to construct words and sentences. Of course this very article couldn’t be written without type other than writing by hand and scanning it in, but I wouldn’t know how to save the file or how to access the website to upload it to if I had no access to typefaces. Of course I don’t have to say where type can be found; it’s absolutely everywhere. However, most people don’t consider where typefaces come from. Most of my life and even the first 5 years or so of my design career I was absolutely ignorant of where typefaces came from. I mean, they were just "there" on the computer and I never considered someone actually had to make typefaces for us to use—letter by letter. In this article I will discuss the history of Roman typefaces; how it progressed during the ages, how each style can be recognized and how to select typefaces consciously and logically r
Mastering TypographyMastering TypographyMastering Typography by MartinSilvertant
Typography is a rather obscure field, which is quite odd because typography is in everything you read. As such, it’s very important for a graphic designer to know everything there is to know about typography and preferably also the history and anatomy of typefaces. Bad typography is usually only consciously noticeable by type geeks (like me), however even someone who knows absolutely nothing about typography will find text with bad typography harder to read. In this article you will learn some basic principles and features to advance your typography.
Before we have a look at the features to improve your typography we have to select the right software. A few features which will be discussed in this article can be used pretty much regardless of the software but for most things you have to use genuine design software, so a program like Microsoft Word won’t suffice. You can achiev
