We had to investigate various different textures that are part of our subject. I decided that since graffiti is most commonly painted on walls I took photo of walls from a close range to capture the rough edges of each different texture. In my opinion this would help me explore the possible backgrounds that graffiti could be used on and could be a great asset for leaflets and posters.
In order to write a message, one must choose an appropriate typeface that captures the theme and mood of the subject. The Fonts below are such examples that will be used for my project. Our lecturer suggested the site www.fontshop.com/ which has many professional fonts. Despite the site having a variety of choices it did not satisfy my needs. I had to turn to other sources like www.dafont.com/
This is a process which involves the listing of one's ideas. I made a list of the way that I will go about doing my work. This is a hierarchy of how I will work. I will find this work very useful while working on the final products.
I found it difficult to make sketches regarding my subject. I had no idea what to sketch in order to raise awareness about the good graffiti. (Good graffiti is a term I use for graffiti that is made to raise awareness about everyday issues).
