saba7 el 7′er!

Oh my, and isn’t it a good morning?


Above: MCAD student Josh, aside for a few hics and tics, not a bad sketch and certainly a very ohiogozaimasu! Fresh sketches from our yes we did Typography: Hierarchy + Expression grupetto.

Oh, and it is on!

Several of our groups are approaching this problem from varying degrees. Again relying on Verena Gerlach’s recent typeface, FF Chambers Sans, the students have tried to interpret our batch of Arabic cell phone type. These sketches were generated in a three hour period, so more time will yield a chance to spot various issues and improve upon them. We welcome any and all feedback, saba7 el 7′er!

Wow, this looks great! I do love them all, but I guess, Sarah really got me with her design (+ my favorite color). Or Liam, Brendan, Tousue, Eric, Dan and Josh?

Verena: Thank you so incredibly much! Also this shade of green is ONE of my favorite colors, and I love the way the gray plays along with it nicely as well! Check out how well your 7′s work together to make that pattern! Too cool!

Dan: I’m completely drawn to yours this go around. The texture in the back? mmmmm… nice.

Thanks for all of these comments. Mona, if you are out there, I have a feeling the first is for the Egyptian Tiger!
