Text Experiments

This post shows more of my explorations of text that I experimented with for my book Grumpy Granny.

This involved a lot of time spent on InDesign and also printing out multiple dummy books to see how they are perceived in the destined format.



I looked into typefaces that I felt gave a friendly impression to evoke my message of home throughout the story and to be received as a welcoming journey for my audience to be drawn too.




It really helped to place a few different typeface experiments on the same page to see the comparison of their visual effect.

In this case (shown below) I wanted to avoid a font that was too heavy and use something that is more light in weight to avoid the text distracting from the image.

I wanted to achieve a harmony between both image and text to create a fitting relationship that would empower my message of the work .

I explored the various spaces that the images offered.

I hadn’t originally planned on using text directly onto the image from my storyboard but as I like to work with space in my image making anyway I had no issues with finding room for my text when I developed this idea.
