Oh yeah ....Right! Excuses Project

On Friday we had the day to begin the Excuses Project.
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.

The excuse 'My Little Brother Lost It' I put into a word search playing with the idea of finding the letters. I also thought of doing a crossword style format with the words 'I'd prefer to be doing crosswords'. My final idea was 'I spilt drink on it', in the coca-cola style of lettering.
