My inspiration for this project is to take a thoughtful investigation into common design elements of typography. Typography has become the entertainment without even having to be read, becoming the new navigator, through use in shape, colour palettes, & textures, turning itself literally upside down. My bottom line is to see what people are currently enjoying to stare at, what’s making a mark.
