I wanted to play around with my chose of excuse to find a more interesting sentence.
I've chosen the excuse - Couldn't Do It ... Was Having A Sugar Rush
I am now working on recreating the typography used in order to do my own sentence. The letters appear in - Coca-Cola, Light and Diet. So I've been using these to piece together an alphabet. For the letters that don't appear I want to take signature parts of the coke lettering such as the loops in the 'O', the terminals and the gradient of the stem. Reading through books on type I've picked up some key parts of a letter to study when creating a font.
Because the project is purely typography I begun by looking through books in the library related to the history of type and the use of it in graphic design.
I brainstormed ideas for excuses - dividing them into two categories 'honest and dishonest'. Sketching and playing around with the excuses I had come up with I decided on three designs that I felt worked visually.
