Typography as comics

In 2007 the Krasl Art Center in St. Joseph, Michigan decided that they were going to have a special TYPOGRAPHY AS ART exhibition sometime in 2008. Later it became TEXT AS ART which changed the intent of the original idea. I had been working on various ideas for the original show, using typography as a comic strip. Here are some of the graphics that I came up with.

Type 2

Type 3

Type 1

Type 4

Type 5

Type 11

This was an interesting project as I have always had a great interest in typography. I have always admired the work of Bradbury Thompson, Paul Rand and Lester Beall, they all did some wonderful things in that field.
