This weeks workshop on typographic forms involved looking at the rhythm of the shape of the letter, working with the rhythm of the shape aloud the letter to form their own unique shape. I firstly worked with a pencil following the process of locking the wrist and repeating the shape with 50 single lines. This was a fast process which helped me explore the shape in greater depth. I loved working like this as it produced letter forms that I wouldn’t necessary created using a computer. It encouraged me to work in a relaxed and calm way. After drawing a few shapes using pencil on A2 paper I then moved on to create random shapes using a thick graphite pencil on a lager scale.
