T]M Graduation 2006/07

June 28, 2007

Here are the all the final projects from the Type & Media departement. I am happy to let you know that everyone passed. The presentation went really well, everyone was quite relaxed and confident about their project. I also presented my porject although I was not graduating. I took this oportunity to talk about how I should approach my work during the next semester. My intention is to start a new typeface possibly influenced by completely different kind of construction principles. The jury suggested that I should clearly define the limits of my project. That is: What is the intended application for my typeface? What are the extremes and what falls outside of the limits of my project ? I am still unsure as how I will approach this new assignment but I am really motivated and I am looking forward to see everyone in september.

Sorry for the poor quality of the pictures but my camera is crap!

An introduction to type design

June 14, 2007

Yves Peters aka Unzipper wrote an interesting article about type design. The first part of a series of articles investigates the type designer as artist and tries to answer questions such as Why design new typefaces? or What constitutes good type design? It’s a good beginner’s read, something that would help my mom understand what the hell I am doing.

Einde Examen Expositie

June 14, 2007

So that’s it. It’s the end of a long year for all the students of Type]Media. Unfortunatly or fortunatly, I wont be taking part in the graduation this year because I need more time to finish my work. I am very greatful that my teachers are offering me to spend more time to reflect on my work and to let it mature a bit more. So this blog is not over yet and there will be new stuff coming soon as I intend to work on a new typeface.
