Vaccum forming:

Really interesting session, i  used the word ‘sky’ to vaccum-form and used the remaining card to cut out various triangles to resemble planes, an obvious link to the war.

Card Letters:

My second-favourite workshop to date! Even though I nearly cut two fingers off with a craft knife, I managed to carry on with only two fingers and create these wonderful pieces! i created a 3D E and a 3D N out of corrugated cardboard

Shadows:

With Dave we used wire to make words and cardboard to cut words out of to use and see the effectiveness of shadows, here are  a couple of examples, using the words ‘Sheffield Blitz’

Wooden Letters:

Hardest workshop, and i definitely picked the hardest letter to do, it took me a couple of attempts to draw the O successfully, but in the end, with the aid of a compass, I managed it. By drilling holes on the edges of the letter, I managed to saw the letter out of the block of wood quite precisely and therefore, I was able to use all three cut outs of the wood to create an interesting typography structure. The curves were pretty hard to cut and I may have snapped the blade at one point, but the end product was quite successful! Now to saw it down!

Metal letter:

Really interesting and really quite simple! It’s really hard to get the font precisely right, and that is where the time and effort comes into effect. The finished piece was my pride and joy, pretty proud!

Google Sketch Up:

The MAC computer switched off before I had chance to save my designs, I will use the skills learnt in this workshop when looking at producing, and producing my final design

Prints:

Using a template to draw out a scaled up version of a B, this could be useful in my mock up typographical designs
