REFRESH FROM CHILDHOOD WITH SPIROGRAPH
The challenge this month was a short one, but a fun one. I pulled inspiration from a toy that I had as a kid growing up in the 80s. It was called a spirograph.
For those of you that never had the chance to use one or those of you that are too young to have used anything without a screen attached to it, the idea was you would put a pencil or pen tip into the tiny holes. Then you would draw around on a piece of paper and create a unique mathematical drawing. Simpler times back then.
So this was the technique that I sought to digitally recreate. For the subject matter, I used letters and numbers associated with the modes required for print and web design. Then I included the top Adobe Creative Suite abbreviation system for the programs that I used the most throughout my career. The designs below serve as a good, quick reference for anyone that forgets or is trying to remember the basics of setting up files.
DAY 251 TO 265
Below are the rules/themes I tried to stick to for this challenge.
- Have some use of line work inspired by spirograph
- Spend around 45 minutes to an hour per design
- Have the line work interact/weave through the typography
- Be related to print or web design in subject matter
DAY 251 TO 265
Comment, share, critique. If you have a challenge that you created yourself, I'd love to hear about it and follow your progress as well.
See you back in a few.
