Step 1.

Brainstorm ten descriptive words that you can easily visualize. Choose two of your favorites.

Step 2.

Do five abstract sketches using lines, shapes, and textures that you feel convert the meaning of each of your words. You will do ten total sketches, five for each word. Examine what worked and didn’t work in your sketches.

  • Step 2 Due: Wednesday February 14th.


Step 3.

Digitize your sketches, and refine your idea as you work. There are many ways you can approach this project, you may want to print out your word set in a particular typeface. Next trace / draw over your print with tracing paper and then scan the result. You can also work directly from your sketches by scanning them and brining them directly into Illustrator.
