OBJECTIVE/目标

For this project, I need to push the type boundaries even further and create my own type. Pick an architecture theme conference, event, tribute, or lecture series; either an existing one or invent one. Describe the event as a whole and determine 3 main topics to be discussed or featured, one topic for each poster. The topics will have to be related to each other in some way. Then interpret the topics with type that is created from scratch.

对于这个项目,我需要进一步打破字体的限制,创造自己的字体。选择一个建筑主题大会、事件、纪念或系列讲座;要么是现有的,要么就自己创建一个。将事件描述为一个整体,并确定3个主要的主题来讨论,每个海报为一个主题。这些主题必须以某种方式相互关联。然后以字体为媒介来从头设计及制作这组海报。

APPROACH/设计思路

I did lots of research on architectural design in order
to choose a topic that has the potential for making a set
of strong architectural typography. After that, I found
an interesting concept, seismic architecture, which
is actually related to where I’ve been living right now.

I extracted a few words as my theme of the posters,
Sway, Heft and Firm. These three words are all related
to seismic architecture and the technology they use.

为了选择一个有潜力的可以用字体制作一套强有力的建筑概念的主题,我做了很多关于建筑设计的研究。在那之后,我发现了一个有趣的概念,那就是地震建筑。这恰好与我生活的地方有关,因为旧金山正是位于地震带上的城市。我提取了几个关键词作为我的海报主题,摇摆,重量和坚韧。这三个词都与地震建筑及其使用的技术有关。
