GRAPHICAL REPRESENTATION OF WORDS / THEMES

V. Ryan 2009

 

The aim of this style is to develop a font that gives the feeling of lazy days in the sun, with a soft drink to quench thirst due to the heat and to invoke memories of relaxation in the sunshine.

A word such as ‘SUN’ has a particular meaning to us all. It means sunlight, the sun in the sky, holidays, lazy days and everything else that reminds us of sunny holidays. The word ‘sun’ written opposite is presented in a plain style although with a little thought it could be presented so that the style represents the meaning of the word.
STAGE ONE: Create or select a rounded style of writing to reflect the ‘round’ sun.
   
 
   
STAGE TWO: On hot days people like to quench their thirst with a soft drink such as orange juice. The style opposite shows each letter as made from glass and filled with orange juice.
STAGE THREE: Bubbles have been added to the juice as well as a straw.
STAGE FOUR: Finally, an image of the sun has been added, above the letter ‘S’. The sun looks as if it is rising or hidden slightly behind a cloud. A small umbrella (the type immersed in cocktails/drinks) has been added to the soft drink.
