Lucienne Day Inspired Lettering

Adele Dark had us experimenting with different techniques to make interesting illustrations or backgrounds for our lettering, and then we moved on to creating our own letters. Inspired by Lucienne Day’s geometry, Bugart, Killian and Klee, we were to bear in mind the quality of their lines, the texture, a strong but simple colour palette, geometric lines, blocks of colour, a few stripes. We drew a rough and not symmetrical grid, to see where serendipity took us as we squeezed, pushed and pulled letters this way and that. This is something I’m looking forward to exploring further.2019-03-16-Lucienne Day inspired lettering-Adele Dark-011
