After portfolio day, I was convinced to be organizing and to give myself more time to perform task because it takes longer than I imagine. I saw how I was not prepared. It hurt me. The worked that I printed was not the final draft. So I had something to show but it was not my best worked on the presentation. Even though it was not my best worked, I still saw that I had room to learn with my type. I felt like I barely touched the surface with type.
I talked to Greg Ross orabor.com. He told me it was a good thing that I was in school for another year so that I can work on my type. I was surprised and hurt to hear him say it.
After looking at his web sits I can see how I can get better. He plays with type. It was very interesting.
I asked for his suggestion he suggest that I read books on type and looked at different layouts in magazines. So I know this is an area that really needs to be developed. In art 308, I recalled reading the importance of type. It is really critical. It is not an area that I want to slack in or continue to be weak.
