Interesting Type in Sharadin

I was looking around type in sharadin and I found this picture hanging on the wall for the communication design poster in the entrance to sharadin. Of all the examples of work from the CD poster this one caught my eye right away. I love the way the please is rendered and it really looks like the little girl is saying please. I also really love the illustration that goes along with it.

Interesting Food Type

I was looking around in my cabinets this week for interesting food type and this is what I found. I thought the font used on the marshmallow part really represented the product well because the the typeface looks fluffy and rounded like marshmallow creme is. I also liked how the out the type in white against a bright blue outline which makes it stand out a lot.

Google is probably the best to look when you need an example of a rebus. They make one for their logo on pretty much every possible holiday. This one I thought was very clever. It was on Ghandi's birthday and his face represents to the G. I think they did a really great job of creating the image so that you can clearly see the G but it doesnt distort the picture whatsoever.

I was looking for examples of inspirational type and I thought this was a funny example of it. This poster was hanging up in my friends dorm room. I think this works as inspirational type because the tracking on it makes it feel really drawn out and it makes me feel like it really will be a challenge when I look at this picture.

Good Type Goes Bad

I was thinking what a good example of good type goes bad would be and I thought I would check my movie collection for either Trajan or big red type. Of course I found both. In pretty much all of the comedies I had this type was used so I figured it would be a good example for type that is good but way overused. They definitly need to come up with a new design and font for movies.

Good Use of Ligature

I found it hard to find an example of this weeks assignment of good ligature. Eventually I did find one in the hallway of my dorm. It was a bulletin board made by students for octoberfest and this symbol was in the corner of it. I'm not actually sure what it means but I feel like this is a good example of a ligature. I think that the letters fit well together yet you can easily see that they are two seperate letters.

Poor Kearning

I found this example for bad kerning while I was in my life drawing room on the desk next to me. The space between the F and the a in faculty jumped out at me right away. They need to be moved closer together by a lot. The space between the U and the s in use could also be brought together more. Other then that I think the rest of the kerning looks okay in the words.
