Stefanie Cobb | Jacksonville State University

This is a selection from a series of drop cap letter screen prints. Each 2-color print was designed and printed using a split fountain technique of printing two colors at the same time to create a gradient followed by a final color of black. The prints included represent a specific classification of type: "K" represents decorative, "V" represents geometric, "X" represents tuscan, and "Y" represents blackletter.

Hippie Fest 2019
Stephanie Garcia | University of Texas at Arlington

This is a festival poster I designed in my Advanced Typography class. The process of how I came up with the design, I was thinking of how to grab for the viewer's attention. I wanted to grab the viewer's attention with clarity of communication and visual inventiveness. I designed a poster for the 2019 Hippie Fest, and I brought elements that were influenced by retro designs of the seventies. My inspirations was bold, round, striped font that was used in the seventies. I also was inspired by 70s posters that had the type stretched out or curved into interesting shapes. I tried to use fonts that fit together with the "2019 Hippie Fest" title. I also looked for a retro color scheme. I added floral illustrations to add some fun to the design, and also it can describe the festival as "fun and friendly" event. I hand-drew the title font and perfected it on Adobe Illustrator, and used the Baloo Thembi Regular and the Josefin Sans fonts.
