For this project as well as an 8 page publication, we also had to make a GIF that represented the whole publication.
I decided that for the GIF I should incorporate the 3 chosen words and then the 6 drawn images, 2 for each word. It was too busy to have everything show up together, so I split it so that you can see what drawing goes with what.
For Broad I researched some publications that I liked and found out that the ones I liked the most were those that used text with drawings or illustrations included. I felt like this fit in well with the blog post that I had chosen, because it had drawings in there as well.
After taking a photo of the drawings, I digitalised them, turned the backgrounds white and split them up, since there were 2 drawings each for the 3 words.
I also wanted to include the other drawings that weren’t chosen for the final posters, to show the various different descriptions people gave.
After finally fixing the font and getting it on the computer, I typed out what my posters originally said and placed them around. I still wanted to sew the middle sections so I left those blank and then sent off the text to be printed.
I think this is much better, because the text looks neater, but you can still see the sewn aspects of the letters.
Going back to my posters for the Walk the Line project, I needed to change the font. Originally I sewed the letters straight on, but it was suggested that they could be neatened up a bit.
So I searched online for a font I liked and found one called Hyperspace, because it is quite square and straight, which would be easy for me to sew. I printed out the alphabet and sewed two versions; one with the thicker wool I had and one with the thin thread.
I put these into an online converter so that I could use them digitally. The thin thread was quite hard to tell that it was thread, so I decided to go for the thicker one.
