The purpose of this test as art project was to understand the important of the typography. We were told to choose any object, animal or a person and create an image using only the letters. through this, I learn how typography plays a big roll in visual communication and how it also provide visual punctuation to help reader connect text with images. through this assignment I learn that to relate text with images.
I first started by coming up with an object or living object to work with. I first wanted to do carnivorous plant however, while I was doing online research, I figure out that it might be kind of too simple so I chose Haetae which is a Korea and china's mythical animal. No one else was doing Haetae and it also looks unique so I though it was a great choice.
After choosing the image, I began drawing something rough draft and thumbnail and went on computer to work on Adobe Illustrator. As I was working on Illustrator, I encountered several problems. At first I had problems with the amount of letter I had to work with. I only had H, a, e, t, a, e to work with and that was very limited since mine had a lot of details. I later ended up changing to "Mythical Animal Haetae". it was soo much easier to work after changing the name.
I think the coolest part of my piece is that its really unique and detailed. I haven't seen any classmates doing Haetae and I think a lot of people doesn't even know what Haetae is. I thought it was great that mine doesn't overlap with other and it might also be interesting if other people see some new things. overall I found this assignment interesting and very helpful. It was a great way to understand how typography can help to provide a visual punctuation to help reader relate text with images.
