Triumph over Chaos by MasterC88 Triumph over Chaos by MasterC88
This was my final project for my Type class. It was a "do whatever you want" kind of assignment. I found this quote by John Cheever, and I thought it was perfect.

Love the idea. And the execution too. It's very clean and to-the-point, but still beautiful.

haha, I love how the rest of the text is sitting on "chaos," thus reflecting the meaning of the quote..

chaos looks driven in the ground. excellent!

how did you get the spiraly designs in the upper right corner? did you make those?

Thanks for the comment! And I think it's interesting that you said "chaos" looks like it's being driven into the ground. I never thought of it that way, but it makes so much sense! :)

And the spirals in the corner is a brush from a brush pack by Ariel-G. Enjoy!

you're luckier than I am, in my school there was only one typography class I could take. everything else I've done was just out of sheer admiration. I think there might be a " contemporary type " class that I can take but..... ehhh. the best way to get into it is to get the books yourself. lol

dude, there is this one book that you absolutely positively have to get !!! this is were I got most of my inspiration from when it comes to type:

Typographic Systems : by Kimberly Elam. if you never listen to me for the rest of you life, it wouldn't matter as long as you got this book!! lol. there is also another called Making and Breaking the Grid. that one is really cool as well but if you were to choose, get the typographic systems.

I use to despise reading until I got into design......now one of the best gifts anyone can give me is a gift certificate to a book store. As artists were are 100% reference, so its imperative that you continue to look at images and feed the mind. sooner or later you'll start to blossom....and the best part is, thats only the beginning!!

I agree about learning with the books. Have you heard of a book called Thinking With Type by Ellen Lupton? It's a very good type book and I would definitely recommend it!
