Helvetica and Illustrator

David Carson TED talk

One warning label created for you, as if were a product.
Create three type drawings.
- One must be representational.
- One must be non-representational.
- One must be expressive.
- You are limited to the "marks" made with the keyboard.
- Black and White only.

Feel of the City

For next week continue exploring and gathering. I'd like you to build a library of images that fit the theme of "Feel of the City". Think of peeling paint, street lights, graffiti, vacant lots, the sky line, etc.
Upload the photos to a new gallery in your Picassa account. These images will be used for later projects including the mid-term, so continue to add to this gallery in the coming weeks. Also feel free to add sketches, rubbings and object scans as well.
