Typoporto










I finally managed to get a few photos of my "Typoporto" book this morning. I hope you like it. It is the result of this research which I blogged a few weeks ago.

We had the crit for the project last Friday and my tutor said I shouldn't have put the colour parts in, and kept it all white. Maybe he's right, but I kind of needed a bit of something zingy with the red and lime (although the last page didn't work out too well with the off-white backs of vintage colour paper I'd used on the previous page).  

I used a combination of embossing, pinholes and cutouts to further explore the typefaces I saw in Porto and I really enjoyed myself!

I love it! I'm not sure whether I agree with your tutor or not, those hints of colour look great.

I really like this Anna, it looks so good and I bet it feels good too. I love those colours on the numbers...they lift it all. It looks like quite a bit of fiddly cutting too. Straight to the top of the class girl!
