Just That Type of GirlPosted: February 22, 2017 | |
My plan for the day got totally knocked off course when I couldn’t go into the dye lab. To say I had a little melt down in the mind wouldn’t be a complete lie. It sounds like I’m really spoilt and wanted the lab all to myself but that’s only partly true. I don’t completely know what I’m doing right now, and that’s just a wee bit stressful, so when my plan was no longer a plan, it kind of threw me.
What I’ve been doing is designing my textiles for my products, my jackets, whereas I’ve come to the realisation that I should designing my textiles and then adapting the product for it (I hope that makes sense). I have three photographs at the moment which I’m going to, and have been, taking into the dye lab and then experimenting with. I have designed 4/5 jackets (it’s between numbers because one of them might get the boot) for which I’m now planning to experiment with samples and techniques, with the overall hope that I will create two of these jackets. Is this enough? I have no flipping clue. I’m hoping my tutorial tomorrow will help clear that up for me.
Since I can’t tackle any of that today and I’ve semi recovered from my metal lapse, I decide to pick something fun off my to do list, which just happened to be researching what font I want to use for my branding. I headed over to Creative Market, an amazing website FULL of different fonts, and started pulling out a few different fonts I like so I can get a clearer idea of what I’m looking for. Here what I found:
I want a sans serif font because for me, they are very fresh and contemporary which is what I am trying to achieve with my collection. I also really like the broken fonts, I think that really connects with the issues of homelessness that I’m looking at with my collection. I plan to do some sketches from these images and find a style that I really like and that fits my collection amazingly.
