abstract visual concepts and the ability to follow direction.
Pinky Plate 3
Format White Mayfair or similar card stock paper cut to 11"x15"
Reproduce the title and the text of this assignment using your
own hand lettering.
Represent the concept presented in the text with a photo. You may use two photos but not more
than two. Online image sources are fine as long as they are cited as directed.
All work must be black and white or grey scale.
Simple clear layouts are best.
Do not lay text over the image.
The photo you chose is very important, take time to find an exceptional image.
Refer to the provided tutorials for help with hand lettering.
Lettering will be all caps. Competence with lettering will require
practice and planning to deliver a suitable final project.
When hand lettering guidelines should be drawn with a light 2h pencil
and lettering finished with a thin black gel pen, guidelines are then erased.
Practice and test in order not to mar your final.
Your name must be hand lettered on the back of the pinky plate.
All images need to be sourced and cited MLA style on the back panel.
Exception: Due to the length of citation URLs photo citations may be printed via computer
and pasted at the bottom of the back panel.
In nature texture is where you find it. In design texture is sought and planned.
Every surface has a texture to be studied and enjoyed, the rooms we live in,
the carpet we walk on, the painting on the wall.
