TEXT as symbol, letter, word, sentence
– Text as INFORMATION.
TEXT as line, shape, form, space, pattern
– Text as DESIGN.
In this hands-on workshop explore Text WITH Image and Text AS Image.
Digitally experiment with visualizing type to communicate ideas, to add decorative elements to images with type, to have type become stand alone imagery.
After a brief introduction of some history, terminology, and visual examples of text/image, you will use Photoshop to change type font, type size, type color, type placement, type/image relationship to achieve text solutions. These processes can be applied to any design format that uses text (posters, invitations, announcements, packaging) or art expression (painting, drawing, collaging, printing).
Bring a digital photograph of yourself on an external jump drive (4G / mobile phone is fine). You will also need the jump drive to save your work.
