typography type portrait

//Typography portrait and the image it was based on//

One of my recent school projects was to make a typography portrait. The assignment was to re-create ourselves using characters as a way to become more familiar with different type faces and really familiarize ourselves letter shapes. Every part of this is done with a letter or symbol and a variety of fonts. Since I started my graphic design program, I have fallen even more in love with typography and learning all I can about it.

I’ve decided I want to share more school projects on here, I think it will be good motivation for me! The photo it was based on is from a guest post I did over on Adrian Loves Owls last spring.

    Lisa, this is so awesome!
    I’ve always been a big fan of typography, and concrete poems and such, but creating a picture like this is so fun!
    I always love seeing other people’s projects. It’s always cool how an assignment will be interpreted and completed differently by everyone!

  14. What an awesome project! It turned out so good! This makes me wish I went on a more artistic path in my studies in school, but a little too late now haha.
    My boyfriend is a graphic designer and I remember he bought a book of vintage typography last year, I wish I remembered the name because it was so beautiful!
    Hope you’re having a beautiful day!
