The Garamond Fox by StolenStars The Garamond Fox by StolenStars
One of the posters i've done for class.
I'm still working on the other 2...

This one is to show the lowercase as the most dominant element.
I also had to use all the uppercase and lowercase and the symbols...

Medium: Adobe Illustrator CS2
Typeface: Adobe Garamond Pro

EDIT:Thank you so much for the the DD :D

To the comments saying i copied this, i didn't this is my *own* work. Bembo zoo did inspire, me but i didn't think the concept of creating images such as animals or objects, people was their original idea as I've seen it done many times before. Just because it's an animal like Bembo zoo used animals, they did not create a fox. I made a fox to go with the caption on the design. I'm offended that some of you have said i've stolen this, as i hate it when people steal other people's work.

In this assignment the lecturer encourage to turn the type into art like objects, people's face and even animals and do it in a creative way

I remember doing this assignment! I did one in my computer animation class, and I made a chair out of the letters from 'lazy'. I wish my computer hadn't crashed, I lost it. O_o

Bembo's Zoo rocks!

How creative! I would never be to look at shapes as rudimentary as LETTERS and imagine them to make up something cool. I like the apostrophe nose. You should get a good grade!

I think it's cute. I love stuff like this! I don't think you copied off of Bembo's Zoo, since using letters to create an image isn't exactly a completely new concept.

Even though others don't appreciate the feeling like looking into the clouds and seeing an animal, I do ^^ Abstract art such as this is always fun to look over. Letter art is up there on my fav's list of abstract art ^w^ Hope to see more :thumbsup:

Yeah, this definitely deserves to be a DD. It's pretty hard to take a fairly boring typeface and make it into something whimsical and fun. Not to mention its superb, minimalist design.
Reply
:icony0j1m80:
y0j1m80 Featured By Owner Apr 22, 2008
uhh, sorry but it's really not. and if it wasn't minimalist, that would defeat the purpose. i've seen plenty of these, and this isn't remotely the best, but they're always making dd. it's boring. not to knock the artist, sure i'd think it was cool if a friend did it, but that's about it.
