Typographic Posters

Professor Victoria Martin's student work

This work was created by beginning design students Sara and Kylin. The students were encouraged to explore classic typefaces as they researched the type designer. I enjoy the playfulness of both designs. They were featured in the graphic design student show on Lake Worth Campus. Great job ladies!

Typographic Portrait

These pieces were created in Design Fundamentals where I teach the students Adobe Illustrator and how to think of and use typography in different ways. Mad Hatter was created by Angie.

The piece below was created by Marie. I absolutely love this piece, the color relationships, contrast and handling of type.

Immediately below is a typographic portrait completed by Heather. She used a photograph of her daughter to create a sweet illustration. My favorite thing is how she created the dandelions from W’s and T’s. I am always impressed with the incredibly talented students here at PBSC.

Kat’s Incredible Brochure

Today I would like to share a brochure created by Kat C. This stunning design was created in Typography class. The students had to create a minimum of eight-pages. Being the spectacular A+ student, Kat did more and each page was more stunning than the next. Fantastic type choices, great layout and readability. This girl has so much potential, it’s just crazy. Thank you Kat for inspiring both me and your classmates.

Typography Portrait by Kethna & Alexis

Today I want to salute two very talented designers/artists: Kethna and Alexis. These typographic portraits were created in ART1201C (Design Fundamentals). Students are required to treat text as a visual and open their imaginations to the possibilities of what typography can mean, rather than just words on a page.

Kethna created the above image. Using only type and effects, she was able to arrange and distort characters found on the keyboard into a likeness. The hairs are multiple parentheses, which she edited and changed using Adobe Illustrator.

Alexis created the image below. His portrait incorporated many words demonstrating multiple perspectives, which gives the feeling of depth on a two-dimensional plane.

Excellent job. Only a few weeks ago, you had never used Adobe Illustrator but look at you now. Brilliant!
