Treasure by Simanion Treasure by Simanion
Another of my typography posters for uni, this time using physical objects to create letterforms. Fun! ..It really was :D

So yes, the word "TREASURE" made up of "trash".

I selected things that one person could view as useless or a piece of junk, but another could see as valuable or precious. There's a whole heap of toys here, and apart from adding pretty much all of the colour, they serve as one of the best examples. When you're a child, your toys are absolutely your treasure. Adults view the same things as bits of junk that collect in piles all over the house.

I got a friend to take the photos and I needed a whole lot of editing in photoshop. I still have alot to improve on in terms of photoshopping skills..

But yeah, let me know what you think!

I absolutely LOVE your answer to "One man's junk is another man's... Treasure." Great concept, intelligent and playful, and reminds me a bit of Craig Ward's style too! *smiles*

Thankyou! Ah..Craig Ward, so good. I'm nowhere near that skilful, but also he's extremely varied in what he does which I admire. But a great compliment, thankyou :aww:

Very few pieces I stumble upon are what I would call "true" art. This is a definite example. The idea is fleshed out very creatively, with all the proper aesthetics and art school etiquette. As much as I love your psychedelic works, this is easily my favorite among your gallery. Keep up the good work, and I hope you continue to explore this avenue of art.

Wow, thanks very much :thanks: I like this too! Although there are things I feel I didn't resolve properly. But yes, I plan to do a whole lot more of conceptual typography works. It's about that time again :D

Thanks! Haha, it actually kind of was. Some just came in one or two goes...but you really need alot of junk to make every letter look new. And nothing was held in place so it kept moving everywhere. Note for future: collect more junk :XD:

Thanks Riannon! Do you mean you made type out of hooks? Like fish hooks? It actually sounds really cool. I'm kind of just starting with my typography stuff on any serious level. But thanks! Hows things for you? When is your wedding?!
