Slimbach

Here's a poster I'm working on for Max Boam's Typographic Form and Function class. The assignment specified that we do the following:
  • Use only 2 colors (I cheated and used two PMS colors!)
  • Talk about a typographer or certain typeface
  • Use only type and only one typeface
  • Use 4 type weights
  • Advertise for a company called "The Face"
I think it works pretty well. Don't know if I'm done yet, though.

I think you've created a clean, yet visually intriguing, design. I had a similar project in undergrad at UMBC. I love the face you created using symbols with the type. And I don't think two PMS colors is cheating! --Danielle

I like this, even amount of white space. I don't know if this counts or not, during working on my 2nd AA degree in Visual Communications in Digital Media, you could use two different colors but in any shades, so if you have that grey in your work, but can use different shades.

Just an idea for ya. I don't know the professor and never taken the class, let me know how you like it when the semester is over and we can compare notes.
