For this assignment, we were asked to take an assigned word and create a composition that evoked the emotion of the word. My word was confident. Early on I knew that the word and the typeface needed to be bold to express confidence.
I then played with extending the first and last characters outside the boundaries of the composition. My final piece of confidence came in the form of the exclamation point in the middle of the word to replace the i. Exclamation points are typically used at the end of a sentence to accentuate them. I wanted the exclamation point to stand a tad taller than the rest to add that last little bit of confidence to the word.
Included are some early works that I produced along the way, I had played with various exclamation points in various places but in the end, I felt like the squared up version in the middle of the word felt the most confident.
