THE ASK: Pick a place to document all the type you see in a period of 36 hours, then create a book showing the common type themes you discovered.
THE SOLUTION: I chose to spend 36 hours walking around my college town of Savannah, Georgia. During this time I noticed three kinds of typography in particular: graffiti, faded-hand painted type, and street-art stickers. While considering the many differences between each form of type, I realized there was one thing that they all had in common — they go unnoticed. To show the unknown effect that the type has on a viewer I placed it on a transparency so the viewer can compare each photograph with and without the type. Additionally I split the book into three horizontal sections so that the viewer can experience all three forms of type at once.
- Wander all over Savannah taking photographs of every sticker, piece of graffiti, and faded, painted type that is interesting.
- Edit all the main type in each photo onto a separate layer.
- Edit the type out of the "original photo".
Maintaining the typography and the original photo during the editing process, especially on more complex backgrounds.
