2007 F/W - Font Design
Generally font is just a word or becomes a sentence or a paragraph when it’s added, so it delivers a story and a message. But font itself has no function of delivering messages without reading it.
I believe image is message.
So I tried to make an Image Font which can be more imagery and more meaningful. So font can show messages without reading, without placing alphabetical order.
This Image Font 2007 F/W is showing fashion trend of 2007 Fall and Winter. I colleted imaged from 2007 fashion collection books and magazines, and did collage work. Collage which is Surrealism technique makes viewers to get more imagination and enriches their senses. Fashion is also visually very attractive, and makes viewers to dream of wearing in actually.
Clothes and wearable accessories have their own unique shapes, so it was a very interesting work to use these images on the collage. Some images were so amazingly turned out, more than my expectation, such as “M” and “V”.
As I used only 2007 fashion collection images, this font is truly showing the certain time of fashion trend. It will be a behind trend next year, and will be a history 10~20 years later. But it will be still saying “I am 2007 F/W” by its own style. That’s the message.
