Choose two words from the list below:
Also, create a “new” word, which has no dictionary definition, and a meaning that only you know. For example, the word I came up with is “roleean”, it doesn’t appear in the dictionary, but it means, “round and leaning to the left”. You should decide on your own “word” with its own meaning. My typographic treatment of the word “roleean” might involve emphasising/dramatically enlarging the letter “o” within the word, and using italics to have that letter leaning to the side.
The words i choose were “Disruption” and “Compression”. The word i made up were “Boorl” more on the meaning of this word later in this post.
Create three different compositions for your three words, one word per composition. In each, arrange each word to express its meaning, using either colour or black and white. Consider all and any means at your disposal: dramatic scale contrasts, cutting, repetition, letter spacing, etc.
The word i created was “Boorl”.It came to mind while i was talking to a friend working at a bar, at the time there were little to no customers, he said he was so bored he could drool all over the counter just to have something to wipe up. Hence “Boorl”,”Boorled” and “Boorling” came to be.
