“Museum of Chinese in the Americas” By Tong Zhi

While on our trip to the museum, the two pieces that mostly caught my eye was the gay Asian poster and “Making Tide” a contemporary comic book. The text used where each Asian person’s name was written on the poster is the text that stood out to me because I want to incorporate very wide and bold letters for my type face design. I will most likely make mine more wide than what is used on the poster. The comic book first grabbed my attention because of the big red circle on the front. I then noticed the all uppercase font in the center of the circle. I like how this font is more whimsical than the other example. My idea is to have a font that has elements of both put together, plus my own personal spin, to create a font.
