For my “Text As Image” assignment, I have 2 separate submissions that are created with the same idea in mind. The purpose of this exercise is to illustrate a word’s meaning visually. My first submission uses the word “paint”. I first found a font that resembled the drippiness of paint. Next, I selected an outline of the word from my painting below. My idea for this graphic is that it should look like the word itself has been painted. I kept the background transparent so that this graphic could be “painted” onto any background colour.
My second submission uses the word “collage”. I found a font that resembled a paper cutout. Again, I selected the outline of the world from my magazine collage below. Each letter in the word appears to be collaged together with different paper patterns.
