Playful Lettering Alterations Transform Ordinary Words into Clever Illustrations
SW: Reminiscent of one of our exercises, which i enjoyed. I am always needing to be reminded to think out of the box with design and this is a good example of doing so in a simple way. - Ji Lee creates typographic illustrations that cleverly relate to the words themselves for his Word as Image series.
I love this. I honestly don't think I'd change anything. I might make the words down at the bottom easier to read. But other than that, I love the idea of how the words fade out. As if it were the persons memory
This is another great use of expressive typography. Using the “o” instead of any other letter was the best choice with this word. The “o” in this case gives us the “aw” sound when saying the word “drop” rather than a long o sound like the word “stove”. Great job on this one.
Although this is only one page, I was drawn to the overlap of text. I think using half of the picture as the texture for the text is creative and eye-catching. They could have easily made the words, "Yes He Did" in bold black and it would have looked good, but this meshes the words and the article with the man.
