A remarkable, passionate and personal story of the art of Fairground Sign Writing, a unique art form that has been dying out, but has found fresh enthusiasm and interest with new generations, enthralled by the restoration of traditional fairground rides.
Welcome to this tutorial on typographic hierarchy. We will be looking at word shape, copy analysis, syntax and semantics. Typographic hierarchy is about analysing text-based information and creating levels of importance based on the meaning of the words. The designer can determine the order in which the reader sees the information through basic typographic techniques such as changing the size, weight or position of the type. This activity is fundamental to typographic communication irrespective of choice of typeface.
So I saw all of these pictures of that volcano in Iceland nobody can pronounce the name of, so I figured I should go and do something that is not news footage but something more cinematic. But the flights to get over took forever as expected (somewhat). 4 days after leaving I finally made it, but the weather was terrible for another 4. Just before leaving it got pretty good for about a day and a half and this is what I managed to get.
Wish I had more time. I missed all the cool Lightning and the Lava of the first eruption. But I figure this will just be a trial run for another day.
I am of course accepting sponsors to send me back there for more please...!! haha
