i recently watched ji lee‘s creative morning talk and i thought his student exercise of illustrating a word’s meaning typographically using really only the word would be a fun little thing to do here and there. having never gone to art school, i never got an exercise like this and i guess i wasn’t smart enough to just try and do something like this without having heard about it first. anyway, if i don’t have time to ponder illustration friday’s topic as much as i want, i may try and do these typographic doodles.
here’s the talk, if you’re interested:
