Type in the environment – ‘Things I have learned’

String text

Typographic project looking at the use of type without using a computer. Based around Stefan Sagmeister’s ‘Things I have learned’ book and work, the idea for the project was to photograph handmade typography in an environment. For my text I chose to use the opening two lines of William Blake’s ‘The Tyger’, which I photographed and recorded over the space of four images. The materials that I used to make up the text ranged from string to pieces of wood.
