Dec. Challenge #2 - Typography


Well-Known Member

Hi everyone! Welcome to this month's typography challenge! Go easy with me, okay - it's my first here at the 'O'. ;) When I was thinking about what to do for this month's challenge, I wanted something that would push my own boundaries, too, and then it hit me: page titles! I struggle with page titles and often reach for wordart (I mean, why not - the designers have done the work for you 'cause they're awesome like that!). It's something I really would like to improve in my digi toolkit, so here we are ...

This month's challenge is to combine at least two different type faces to create your page title. Mix a chunky, block font with cursive. Apply styles and blending modes to change the appearance of your fonts. Have fun mixing and matching.

Want some examples? Let's start with the Oscraps website homepage. Here three font types used: one for the word Oscraps, then a typewriter-style, and a handwritten or script font. A great little trick there, too, is to have the main title (one or two words), and then a sub-title, which is the perfect place for mixing in a few different fonts.


From www.inspirationfeed.com, how about turning your page title into subway art like this:


From www.boostinspiration.com - another example of mixing type styles to create a title (in this example, it was a quote):


For more inspiration, do some Google images searches using keywords like typography, logos, and even scrapbook page titles. Here's the page I created as well as examples from the Cherry-O's. I really wanted to emphasize the word "loveliest," in the quote as I love the changing of the seasons that come about in Autumn, so that's the one in the quote that I chose to highlight by creating a label --
