MY WORD:
DRAMN

MY SHOW:
video

Pronunciation: \ˈdr-ahm\
Function: verb
Inflected Form(s): dramned; dramn·ing \ˈdra-miŋ\
Etymology: Rooted in the word damn, which comes from Middle English dampnen, from Anglo-French dampner, from Latin damnare, from damnum damage, loss, fine. Combined with Middle English dreem, from Old English drēam noise, joy, and Old Norse draumr dream; akin to Old High German troum dream. First used on Falmouth Avenue in Playa Del Rey, California - formerly the California Republic.
Date: September 2009

FIVE LETTER WORD: SMROO

smroo:

My first word VARLE: stay tuned for definition

and SKIGH

Prutz

Hello there!!
so my words were: blakk; smuff; fratz; prutz; glaaa and xurrs. My final choice was Prutz which means something that you do half ass, or without any desire. I couldn't pick just one direction/outcome so I have 4:



AGAHI


 So I had a really hard time with this. My first idea or I should say original idea was the word Sumfy and I tried and tried and RE-tried to no avail to get it to work but couldn't. For some reason I thought using type and water was a smart idea. LOL. Yeah NO. It was just a FAIL moment. Since I spent hours on it (even though it doesn't look like it) here is what it came out:


So I moved onto Plan B and used my other word which was Agahi and I tried that out as well and here it is:

Can you see it?

Assignment #4: Type in Motion

People often say, "if I only knew then what I know now." Without using "fancy" programs (i.e. aftereffects, flash, other animation software) send a message to your past self using type in motion. What will you choose to reveal about the present to your past self? How will you use motion to tell the story of a significant way in which you have changed? While you may not use software or animation programs to make your message move, you will want to capture the message for presentation next week with still images assembled into an animated gif or with simple, unedited video.

ONTON Morse Code

What is an ONTON an oONTON is an action done while you are on ONE. Back in my partying days my friends would always do weird things while we where messed up. My friend Nick would always try to write letters to people but never write them he would just tap dots on the paper and we would say it was morse code. So it would be "dude look at nick being all ONTON over there" So for my process I looked up morse code to go with my idea and spell out ONTON

5-Letter Word

Sorry about my tardiness of my process post this week, I've been battling sickness and other outside life influences/mishaps...

My word is a word that describes something that usually takes me at least 4 sentences to describe, so I'm pretty excited about shortening it to a single word.

I've been deciding between these:
vaxyt
avtep
zagiv
zinid
caxiv
ziful

Right now its between caxiv and zinid, so I'm doing explorations of both of these words... I don't want to post my few explorations, for I fear that I may give you too many clues... I guess you'll just have to wait until Tuesday!

stuffed wuffy


Here I have laid out my "pattern" on the fabrics I have chosen to make my word out of. After I pinned it to the fabric, I carefully cut it out and began to sew. I'm just about done sewing the two pieces together and am stuffing and closing up my word.

Saturday, September 26, 2009

No Really, I don't even know.


MY THREE WORDS WERE

choit

nonya

chuch

I"M not going to tell you which one I chose.
I thought thats what we were trying to figure out in class.
My head hurts.

5 letter word-Process & Ideas

So I'm stuck between two words:
Sumfy
Gochi
I'm gonna take a shot at both and see which one I like more and go from there. For Sumfy I will leave a few hints



MMMMM | Adriana






holy jesus of course my studies are on my cats. I was thinking about making my studies based on some filthy, nasty words...but i'm already doing that in Type Design. So I took
-kitty
-meow
-gato

I got Miato, Kieow, and Gimey. I think the last one sounds like gimmie, so I'm taking it. Cuz I demand she gives me love when I get home.

COLE'S WEEK 4 PROGRESS.

MY THOUGHTS:
i've been combining actual words, while also making words up out of the air.

there are a handful of words i am favoring - but i won't be able to make my decision until i figure out how each could be fully executed.

MY WORDS:
haive
ginch
neady
ralms
blonk
smilt
clurd
plody

========================================

UPDATE:
i have gone with the word dramn.
the piece will be a video.
this is not a haiku.

A HINT OF THE WORK:

Dorgy







My word is Dorgy, and here is my progress so far. Truth be told, I'm not sure if my idea is going to work...

wuffy!














I printed out my word at a large scale to use as a pattern on the fabric I intend on using for the project.

WERD


These are my words:
skigh
varle
itsny
chome

This is my inspiration:









I have the vaguest idea of what happens next.

Bimini

COLE'S FINAL NON-ROMAN

THE FINAL SWING:


STORY:
this good fellow posterish was supposed to be my attempt at a pixar movie-film one off. i took the characters of my language and attempted to build something that resembled physical objects the could be recognizable. i found that one of my character forms looked something like a man wearing a mask - which i tried to highlight with the red. i also see another face somewhere near the top left, but that might be because i am cuckoo and imagining thingers.

PREVIOUSLY:
the build-up to this poster can be found HERE

Assignment 3: Five-letter Word

(from the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in the Netherlands)

Select five letters to make a five-letter word. The word should - as far as we can judge - be unknown to any language. Make sure the word sounds common and familiar to our ear. Ascribe a meaning that seems obvious for this word.

Make a design, using the word, that explains its meaning. The medium of the design is inherent to its ascribed meaning. Use nothing more than you really need (ie. no literal explanations, no illustrations).

Make three, very distinct, variations with either the same letters or others. Choose one to refine and present to the class next week. At that point, we should be able to infer your meaning from your design.

NOTE: consider creating a word whose meaning fills a hole in the english language. Perhaps you always wished for a descriptor for a certain feeling or action. For instance, the word "schadenfruede" (: enjoyment obtained from the troubles of others) exists in German, but there is no English counterpart. Can you think of another phenomenon for which we have no word?

Final Poster: 5th Element Movie Screening

COLE'S EXPERIMENTAL WORKISH

STORY:
things moved how i wanted them to. i allotted a few hours to work and play with the vectors. things felt good. i really enjoyed the interactions between the forms and began to think of them as little characters. with that thought in mind, i wanted to create something that had movement. i had recently been using SAUL BASS for inspiration. simple, true, and vibrant - his work feels good. the poster is finalized, but i'm going to hold off on showing it until class.... because anticipation is half the fun.
