( Experimental Typography /
Movie Posters )
This project allowed us to explore typographic forms in a new way. We were asked to choose between either Akzidenz-Grotesk or Century Schoolbook typefaces to experiment with and create our dream forms using materials and media we were unfamiliar with. The final deliverables were movie posters and a film trailer.
Dreams reflect and refract our daily reality. I researched how reflection and refraction manifest themselves in nature and translated these phenomena into experimentations with type. I used a projector, water, different glass shapes, mirrors, and monitors and changed the density of the
liquid medium to create various refractory effects. Then, I chose the movie Interstellar for the poster design and developed a trailer to reflect the concepts of reflection and refraction as they appear in the film.
