Abstracting Type

This week I’ve started an abstracted typographic layout that take inspiration from Swiss type design and twists it, using warped shaped and dimensional elements.

The full phrase that I’m setting is “Why should your pleasure be guilty?” For “why should” and “you…be” I’m creating a dimensional look by extending the letter forms and topping with a “flat plane”.

For “pleasure” and “guilty” I’m employing overlapping and warped text to add dimension to the piece.

It’s a slow process with a lot of design decisions to make but I’m energized about it!

That’s it for now,
