Initial Proposals

Proposals 1. 

“PROCESS THROUGH TRANSFERS”

I have recently explored using a gel medium to transfer printed inks onto found wood. I would like to discover more ways that this medium can be used. The process allows different results each and every time. This medium reflects the same effects as silkscreen, but can be produced in a cheaper and faster fashion. I would like to explore this medium through 3D and 2D typography, signage, sculpture and other various formats. How does this process change when you transfer it into large spaces or even onto different materials?

“LITERACY THROUGH TYPOGRAPHY”

NUMBER TWO

When I was eight-years-old I was diagnosed with ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) a disorder that has hindered my ability to read and write at grade level. I am interested in exploring ways in show how one with ADHD can read and comprehend written language better through graphic relations to that word. By using typography I want to explore the written language as a form. How can I make a word easier to read to the less literate?

 Proposals 3.

“DESIGN THROUGH PACKAGING”

NUMBER THREE

I am also very interested in package design, and what factors go into making the final package for that product. I want to explore materials, shapes, design, typography, color, and folds. I want to learn what factors work better with consumers and how the package entices consumers to purchase that product. By discovering these different aspects of packaging I hope to understand and create successful packaging.
