Modular Typeface

I started this project searching for typeface examples to have a background about what the topic takes about. Then I started taking photos for patterns to draw modules out of the patters

After collecting patters I traced the modules by a tracing paper and colored it to start making my letters and experiment the letters in Arabic and English.

I did 6 letters in English ” M, V, F, E, J,C “.

I did 5 letters in Arabic ” Alef, Baa, Waw, Lam and Meem”. After experimenting with letters I started making my modules in Glyphs and building my letters. I had chosen to do English letters in upper and lower case.

After finishing the upper case letters which took a lot of time building it, I started building the lower case. But I had a lot of fun building it and creating fonts.

Based on the upper case I stared playing and having fun crating the lower case which didn’t take much time as the upper case, I think that because I know how to build my own font now!!!!!.

After finishing the lower case letters I get so excited to start typing and using my font, so I typed my first typing in Wedesday I wrote ” Tasmeem Hekayat ” which was awesome!!!.

After I typed my new font I printed it out and hanged it on the hallway to have it critiqued, the critique helped me to see what is wrong in my letters and adjust them.

The Sequential Comic Narrative

I started this project by searching for the meaning of 10 words as a biggining of the project. Then I looked for some comic books to get some ideas before starting.

  1. Irony: the expression of one’s meaning by using language that normally signifies the opposite, typically for humorous or emphatic effect.
  2. Metaphor:a figure of speech in which a word or phrase is applied to an object or action to which it is not literally applicable.
  3. Personification: the attribution of a personal nature or human characteristics to something non-human, or the representation of an abstract quality in human form.
  4. Cliche:  a phrase or opinion that is overused and betrays a lack of original thought.
  5. Vernacular: he language or dialect spoken by the ordinary people of a country or region.
  6. Pun: a joke exploiting the different possible meanings of a word or the fact that there are words which sound alike but have different meanings.
  7. Oxymoron: a figure of speech in which apparently contradictory terms appear in conjunction.
  8. Simile: a figure of speech involving the comparison of one thing with another thing of a different kind.
  9. Metonym: a word, name, or expression used as a substitute for something else with which it is closely associated.
  10. Satire: the use of humour, irony, exaggeration, or ridicule to expose and criticize people’s stupidity or vices, particularly in the context of contemporary politics and other topical issues.

On the next class I started sketching my ideas for the comic book, which will be talking about a batola which takes you to the past when wearing it.

On Wednesday at class we set as groups and tell our story and show the story board. I had some critique from the girls and had to adjust the story board to have it more clear.

The story board helped me a lot to improve my store and to figure out the spots that I am missing in the story so I worked on it and tried my best to improve it to make it more sense.

100 Things ” Poster “

I started this phase researching for posters, collecting ideas and some informations before starting the project.

After research I had a punch of ideas running through my mind , I started writing notes and sketches . After that I began making the posters on photoshop,  I had made 5 posters as first prototype.

On the next class having some feed back on the posters made me un happy with them so I had to choose 2 posters out of 5 and  re-do them as second prototype. I worked hared to make them as perfect as I can.

After third class I choose one of the posters and re create it, finish it up and make it ready to print. I made 6 models from the one poster that I had chosen to had more options while chooseing one of theme.

After I finished from them I had my mother and sister in law creitique my work, based on their creitique I choose the last one on the left, I tried to improved it more. Then I had an idea to print the poster on a canvas fabric which symbolize apron which was one of my 100 things.

I had my poster ready for class which I was exited to show Law and Leland.

After having creitique on Monday I have wrote down where my post is weak and what is the strongest thing in my poster, I improved the visual weakness in the poster and made it more stronger, but I thought that still my poster looks the same so I decided to take a risk and change a lot in my poster and worked more on the details. I am not a risk taker but although I took that big step, taking risks made my poster look diffrent which I am proud of. Then I asked my family and friends to creitique the new poster. I learnd from this project to not stick with one ideas and taking more risk and that risk is the key for success.

100 Things

I started this project by choosing an object ” whisk” which I sticked with for 6 weeks.

After choosing my tool I start to create a mind map based on the tool, when the suffering begins. From the mind map I started creating 2D and 3D objects and illustrations and glue them in 10*10 pistol board.

Phase 001:

On the first week I created 40 designs, I had hard time making it, because I only had 4 days to finish all 40, I failed making some but I challenged my self and until I nailed it.

On the  end of the 2nd week of this project was the opposite words part, I had a paper with a lot of words and I had to create a 2 opposite objects. I created 30 opposite pairs out from the paper.

By the 3rd week I had 100 different object hanged on the wall and 30  pairs.IMG_5381.JPG

 

Phase 002:

Pair of words and their antonym

In this phase I picked object from my 100 things and thing of a different ways to present it. Law and Leland  gave me a couple of words to think of another way presenting the object using the words, and that what I came out with.

At the beginning I didn’t know what does the words mean so I start to search and until I get what is the meaning. Then I start to collect pictures and to know if its right while matching I choose the one that make sense more.

Phase 003:

Word=Image=Image=Word

In this phase I choose 2 pairs that are similar by shape but different objects and combine them with 2 opposites words. In this phase I start to get it because it is slightly the same as phase 002.

Beautiful Bitmaps

At the beginning  I struggled and got confused because I didn’t know what does  typography mean and that I can create a font with my name so I started adding simple shapes as I expanded and experiment.IMG_5224.JPGfirst sketch.jpg

I had some hard time figuring out a beautiful way to write my name in, but  I didn’t get the right font until I did some research in ways to write my name in Arabic and that what I came out with, which I am very happy with.

Today I made a Wonderfull Bitmaps using triangles creating diamond shape. While making the bitmaps I faced some challenges like, how would I do my name? and would it work, And YEEEES!!! I did it..
