Connecting Type

I wanted to create a separate post for the Connecting Type sub-project as switched this work from 3D to 2D. To remind you, the letters looked liked this in the shoot…


I noticed that the bottom row of chips was a bit dark so I went in to Photoshop to attempt to fix this on one of the images.

Pre-edit


Edited

It does make a nice bit of difference to the image with the shadow removed. I couldn’t be assed to do it to every single one though.


From this I moved onto the 2D format once more…


That then became more idly this…


Inverted, this then looked like that…




With a few extra dots to make a border…




I think they actually look more legible smaller…

There is now potential to move back onto 3D… Before that though, I organised them into alphabetical order. Seems to help make it easier to read. I also added a border to the grey/black typeface. See below.

Im thinking of popping some semi circles into metal to create the type in 3-dimensions, but want to (maybe, after) explore some 3d type form that exploit the idea of ‘transformation’ mentioned in my research question.
