Revealing the power of the grid, color, and geometry

istype_screens03

ISType (Istanbul Typography Conference) aims to encourage people to get more involved into typographic literacy by speeches and workshops.

The idea
The main starting point for the project is the letter design and its 2 dimensional canvas, geometry and the grid system. Every scene refers to specific speakers and these scenes evolve in the grid structure and differ from each other. The colors for the scenes are inspired by the speakers themselves. For example, Gerard Unger’s passion for the color purple which was used on his website and book’s cover.

Limitation is good!
Only one font family, Droid Sans, Serif and Mono was used in this project. The main purpose of this limitation was to create a common language among the speakers, to reveal the power of the grid, color and the geometry in the scenes.

I’m passionate about typographic perfection, grid systems, and color interactions. These passions of mine motivate me to do my best and make me question how to get to the best design solution and how to do it in the simplest way. I believe that good design results from a good communication and a collaborative process.
