While Experiment A worked solely with a 24×36 inch surface, Experiment B challenged with a well-known folding technique (in my case, a Malinoski tip from many years ago). The resultant sizes are 9×12 inch single units with three 18×12 inch spreads.

Using the same text material and typographic limitations from the first approach,
the students now tried to address issues of sequence and narrative (retaining the need to create an overall final poster form!). This, in addition to the secret rules of the space-time continuum I have been sharing for years (the above from a VCUQ whiteboard in 2005). Here are some their second experiments, works in progress!

Above: The third and final ‘obstruction’, as Sarah has called these, the students are asked to create a linoleum block shape (5×5) which we will hand-print with a common yellow. Revisions to the above sketches must anticipate this spot color.

We remain grateful to be working with Verena Gerlach’s recent typeface,
FF Chambers Sans. Gracias, Verena!

Wow, this looks so cool. And it’s also a part of history. I’m deeply impressed and excited, what will come next.

seeing our work on the internets really puts things in a different perspective. i’m able to find compositional opportunities that may not have been apparent in the natural light of the physical realm.
