INCREASED BIT DEPTH
Develop a concept which examines an increased bit depth to create and develop your letterforms. A larger bit depth allows the possibility for greater detail. The increased detail allows the possibility for illustrative line work, the creation of a half tone, or complex patterning.
Look at broader concepts such as half-tone or patterning.
- Begin your concepts on grid paper; use a larger drawing tool if necessary.
- Draw a large stroke that cover multiple units. Refine each letterform as needed.
- Translate your refined sketch to FontStruct. Refine, embellish and alter letterforms strokes, blocks/units. Refine each letterform as needed.
- Use the extra bit depth to create minute details that may be unseen at low resolutions, or may present themselves with larger applications
- Examine the potential of:
- Large brush strokes
- Half-tones or bit map photography
- Letterforms must contain a minimum of 30 — 50 units (either width or height) (for example: a bit ratio of 30:50, 25:50, 50:50)
- You must create a minimum of 26 characters/letterforms (you may create more if you wish)
- You do not need to create a full alphabet or series of letterforms.
Project Two Amendments
The current project brief is being altered to accommodate many of our needs and requests. Plan on presenting a 4—6 letter (in length) word with the larger bit depth letterform concepts.
Your word MAY NOT use repeating letterforms.
NO: toto, tutu, onto, or BOGO
If your concept allows more letterforms; by all means continue. I suggest you examine a concept or method that allows you to create more diverse letterforms more quickly.
