Weather grid layout
Create 2 different typography designs from the same content. Each solution will use specific font (see below) within a 8” square using Adobe Illustrator.
Design 1 - Only black and white can be used on the first design
Design 2 - Color can be used on the second design
You MUST ONLY use Myriad Pro, any of its font styles, and any sizes or Franklin Gothic, and any of its font styles, and any sizes. You may combine both fonts together if you wish as well.
Each solution must use the following text:
Weather for Chicago, IL.
Currently 13 Sunny
5 Day Forecast
Monday Sunny High 21 Low 12
Tuesday Partly Cloudy High 19 Low -5
Wednesday Sunny High 10 Low 4
Thursday Sunny High 11 Low 1
Friday Sunny High 19 Low 7
Lines and shapes can also be used. These must be created inside Illustrator can also be created like many of the examples show.
Open the Adobe Illustrator Weather Grid Layout template. It can be located on the (G:) network drive > Computer Art 2 > Weather Grid Layout
Objective: In this project you will learn so see typography in two ways:
1) as visual elements in a two-dimensional composition
2) as information which represents hierarchical organization. Emphasis will be on establishing a clear visual hierarchy and exploring compositions that closely adhere to a given modular grid.
What is a Grid?
Made famous by Swiss graphic designers such as Josef Müller-Brockmann and Wim Crouwel as far back as the 1920s and 30s, the use of a grid system can be hugely beneficial to all creatives, especially designers and illustrators. Grids can act as an aid to achieve ordered structure within your design.
A grid subdivides a page vertically and horizontally into margins, columns, inter-column spaces, lines of type, and spaces between blocks of type and images. These subdivisions form the basis of a modular and systematic approach to the layout, particularly for multipage documents, making the design process quicker, and ensuring visual consistency between related pages.
