Type & Colour

After several typography workshops we were asked to create a typographic poster that combined all the elements of type we had learnt about- for example how size and weight effects the ‘voice’ of the type. We were also asked to incorporate colour and discuss how this effected the meaning and message the type was giving. 


This typographic piece was created with the use of charcoal- before considering colour we considered the effect texture had on the voice. The use of charcoal appeared to give the word a ghostly voice, one that wasn’t very loud, and was almost washed out. The mood this texture created could be one of fear- the person speaking might be afraid or scared of something or someone.


Coloured backgrounds and text also effect the voice, and bring to light the idea of colour theories. This is when we began to consider the idea of warm and cool colours as well as complimentary colours.
