Project 4

  1. What did you learn?

I learned about the strategy that comes along with the placement of words while doing typography. 

  1. What was easy?

Rotating the words 90 degrees, clockwise as well as counterclockwise was the easiest part for me and I felt like the difference between rotating it counterclockwise and clockwise added another element to my designs. 

  1. What was challenging?

The most challenging part for me was coming up with different designs for my slides that had the same lines as I just kept thinking about the slide I had done prior with the same words. 

  1. How could your submission be improved?

I think having some of my words written from top to bottom not only having my words written from left to right and then rotated would have improved my submission. 

  1.  How could the professor improve the assignment for the next class?

I think giving students the opportunity to change their nursery rhyme from the first project that we had submitted would have improved the assignment as I faced the same challenge of coming up with different designs for slides which were a repeating line within the nursery rhyme that I had chosen 

  1.  How might you apply your knowledge in future assignments or work scenarios?

Having gained the knowledge of the impact of the different boldness of the text has on an image will be applied in my future work and assignments as I can see from my work how the different boldness attracts your eyes to certain words more than others. 

  1. How did a specific reading or video inspire or help you?

Rewatching all of the zoom classes where you used a variety of variations when combining words, rotating them and using different typefaces.
