Gill Sans Informational Type System
This typographic timeline is a case study of a 5 day schedule documenting hourly activity, location and the priority level all marked by typographic elements using the typeface Gill Sans by Eric Gill. Gill Sans is unique in that it was designed with irregular forms rather than perfect geometry. The non-uniform nature is more human than mathematical, used for informational and vintage oriented design. The circular unique glyphs and detailed elements in Gill Sans were the primary focus to my system creating more organic shapes and dimensional illusions throughout the body of work.
The overall design was to be composed of one system utilizing the same elements throughout the piece to create an overall system to 'mark' each event and activity through the course of each day.
