For one of my week five assignments, I chose to do the assignment, Word that was submitted by Rabia Aman.
The assignment is to, “Pick one word. Select one single typeface, and communicate your word. Do not use colors or any other graphical elements. The goal is to select a type face that represents the meaning of the word, and if needed manipulate the font using different sizes, bold, italics, counterform (spacing) etc to visualize the word.” The assignment is worth 2 points.
I picked this assignment because I thought it would be really cool to manipulate a word in a cool way. I wanted to do this assignment and dedicate it to the 6 stars we had to do for our character dossier this week.
When I was thinking of words to do, I was thinking of a lot, but I narrowed it down to one word: Mayfield. I picked Mayfield because not only is Shirley’s last name Mayfield, but it is also the name of their family’s department store. I think that it has a lot of meaning for my character.
I used Microsoft Word to create my word. I used WordArt. I created each letter individually and then rotated them the way that I wanted them.
I really enjoyed doing this assignment! Manipulating the letters was really fun!
