“Typography is embedded into our everyday life therefore it becomes part of our culture”
“Can the semiotic theory be applied to topical typography thus bringing more meaning and importance to the chosen subject matter AND typeface?”
I'm looking at topical typography. Designing a typeface based on a specific area. I have chosen the area, it is a landmark that deals with two cultures and the reclaiming of land.
I'm thinking of pulling the semiotics out of the area and visually working these into letter forms giving a more meaningful typeface and a deeper visual/verbal representation on the specific area.
Sound like an interesting project? Perhaps not?
What other area's of design would you recommend considering when using type?
- typeface design
- 3D type
- interactive type
