So I’m back on track with the D&AD brief. To an extent, I mean. I remembered that what I was doing before I got sidetracked by making my own font and, to be honest, its nothing special. I’ve decided to go back to the whole red-white-black, Tschichold-esque layouts – its a look I like. Of course, these posters were made using the Red Roman font which is more of a pain in the ass than I care to admit – seeing as I still haven’t got a program to be able to convert the entire font into a usable font file (don’t ask me what the fuck its called, I couldn’t tell you) I’m still stuck to copy/pasting the words letter-by-letter in illustrator.
Which, as you can probably imagine, is an emotionally taxing process which I don’t have either the emotional capacity nor the psychological resilience to undergo for more than an hour at a time before devolving into a mumbling, drooling and generally annoying human being.
Anyway, gonna cut it here. Half-term next week so no post unless I feel particularly disatisfied with my free time.
