Reading Response: Type, Image, Message
The first section of Type, Image, Message, discussed the process and benefits of using the cut-paper technique in creating a poster (or image). Specifically, it stressed the use of folding and defining different areas as windows for typographic additions as well as potential framing for added images. Section two reviewed the process used to create a three-dimensional model for the purpose of a final image for use in an architecture competition poster. Emphasis particularly was placed on connecting the program's theme and the aesthetic of the poster. I thought the use of Boston's financial aid district was an interesting starting point/model. As I consider different people to follow within the given parameters, using semiotics to describe them will be especially important as the project is constructed and developed into a final image.
