Visual Language - Type 1 (OUGD104)

This is the work produced in my Visual Language session on 6/10/2009. In each composition I have attempted to use the most appropriate typeface to communicate the given word in the most effective way possible.

This composition should communicate the notion of 'duplication' through one composition on its own:

'Duplication Through Single Composition'

And this should communicate 'duplication' through a sequence of 4 compositions:

'Duplication Through Sequence'

This should be communicating the notion of 'compression' through a single composition:

'Compression Through Single Composition'

This should be communicating the notion of 'compression' through a sequence of 4 compositions:

'Compression Through Sequence'

The following should communicate the idea of 'dissection' through a single composition:

'Dissection Through Single Composition'

And this should be communicating the idea of 'dissection' through sequence of 4 compositions:

'Dissection Through Sequence'

This composition should be communicating the notion of being a 'hybrid':

'Hybrid Through Single Composition'

And this should communicate the same idea of being a 'hybrid' through a sequence of 4:

'Hybrid Through Sequence'

This composition is supposed to be communicating the notion of 'editing':

'Edit Through Single Composition'

And finally, this is my interpretation of a sequence of 4 compositions communicating the idea of 'editing':

'Edit Through Sequence'

And that was the work I produced as a reaction to the instructions given during the session! I felt that that all communicate their given word well enough. I guess this can be supported by the fact that when I muddled up the sequences for someone else to guess which ones matched the words we were given, they got all 5 sequences to match the correct words with which they are associated.

It was a worthwhile exercise in understanding how type can work in communication without having to spell it out. Letterforms can certainly work with the same principles as image when communicating something.

Cheers.
