Originally from Sweden, I am a detail-oriented graphic designer focusing on typography in all of its forms. For the showcase I have decided to share three projects from my fourth year at Glasgow School of Art.
Templeton is an uppercase-only typeface inspired by Glasgow’s historical past in the carpet design. The main source of inspiration is the ‘T’ which can be seen in the company Templeton’s old logo, and the Arts and Crafts movement. It is a new take on the Glaswegian typeface, with sharp edges and decorative swashes.
Typografi is a bilingual type magazine aiming to highlight and promote type designers from the Nordic countries. It features Or Lemmen as the issue’s typeface, alongside projects such as Sweden Sans and The Pyte Foundry.
Throughout the process of making the magazine, the page size and layout changed progressively. This can be seen in the work-in-progress image, which features four iterations – with the last one being the first printed mock-up.
COMMUNICATION DESIGN WORK IN PROGRESS SHOW 2020
With the initial idea of creating a poster as an intervention of a space, this identity took the inspiration from warning tape. The letters used in the poster are made from manipulating a typeface found in the caseroom at Glasgow School of Art, with a playful take on the spine of the S. The captions and the rest of the visuals for the exhibition incorporates the design guidelines established in the poster, such as condensed type and narrow formats.
The identity of the exhibition started with creating the poster, which went through a large amount of iterations before arriving at the final ones.
