Ze Frank Layout in Type by thewalker09 Ze Frank Layout in Type by thewalker09
This was an assignment for my typography class. So, everything on here was formed with type. Even the black bars at the bottom are made with type.

We had to come up with one Graphic Designer that we admired and then created a layout based around them. I chose to do mine on Ze Frank. Why you ask? Because the man is awesome and a genius. If you haven't heard of him, google him and play around on his site or look up "The Show". It will take like 5 minutes for you to agree with me. ^.^

Any way, this project was actually fun and I'm kind of proud of the result. Oh, and for disclaimer purposes, I found the text and the base for the image on line. I didn't come up with them. And if you care, the text that makes up the image portion if the layout is just that same quote from him over and over again. ^.^

Oh nice. Yeah we have a lot of classes that are centered around doing real world work. Some design students participated in this new partnership where they made things for HBO's new line up of shows. The Barnes and Noble thing was another one like that.

Where do you go to School?

Great layout.

But, using type to create a photographic image misses the point of the assignment, IMO.
Reply

thewalker09 Featured By Owner Aug 7, 2007
Thank you. Making the photographic image out of type was actually part of the assignment actually. Gotta blame my professor on that one. ^.^0

Thank you! Ummm it was a project at school, so from start to finish it took about a week. ^.^0 I can't actually tell you the hourly time because I have forgotten.

But a week was how long the project took from conception to completion. My type Professor was a real stickler for the gray values.
