to create our typography poster for bexhill we obviously had to take a visit to the location and check out the type down there. while there i caught some good photos of both good and bad examples of type. also i got some good shots of the scenery there trying my best to feel the atmosphere.

these fonts inspired me by the way the alignment was different to everywhere else, it made it look original and gave an old feel to it.

These old comic book covers were found in an old film store, i liked these because the type used on them were extremely bold and flew out towards people. although how much i like them i won’t be using these fonts in my project seeing as its the wrong style and the target audience may be a little different.

The vintage look on these pieces grabbed my attention because i love the idea of bringing back the old. some of the type looks a little tacky but others fit the display perfectly. some of these shots may be presented in my final piece bringing an old touch to the project.


Here is a bad example of type which caught me, you can’t even make out what it says!

In the pictures i wanted to get the feel of bexhill, i wanted to know the colours and style of the area. the photographs of the scenery are to implement a simple design maybe of the landmarks of bexhill giving the audience of the poster a little more information on where the type walk is.

giving a simple draw out of a landmark will bring a personal touch to the poster giving the audience a taste of what to be expected at bexhill, also collaging all the photographs i took into one maybe cropping some of them will give an extra bit of expectation.

in the two photos to the right above, i likes the shattered effect on the glass in the middle photo as that it was an accidental cause meaning you’ll never be able to implement the same effect again thus making the piece of glass unique. these things i like because accidents that happen to become permanent become extremely unique.on the right hand image i love the way the shadow of the sign shows an E in the middle. the design of the log is so simple yet so powerfully bold.

In conclusion this trip helped a lot getting me to grasp with what the are was like and how id show it all in my poster to my target audience, i will hope to be including all the imagery in my final project, my only problem is is that i haven’t got much variety, for instants i did not get any photos of graffiti or street art, the reason being is because i didn’t want my poster to look messy, i find most graffiti very horrible and none of it is unique nowadays. However this may hopefully not be an issue.
