He uses screen print and letterpress to create the textures in the words. I like how the words are shown in different directions and how there is a limited colour palette, which makes it more simple but effective.

Erica Kitamura uses a experimental typography in books, her work revolves around concrete poetry. I like how the words are shaped in a visual way. It looks distinctive and stands out. Also there is a good use of white space.

Spiral shows same colour but as it goes towards middle of the spiral the opacity is decreased. I could use this in my work and use the tone of the same colour depending on the voice in the play.

Research: Tunnels

Words shown in perspective and in different directions. This could be a way forward with my spiral to keep the idea of words going in different directions but in perspective. And again this will also add to the voice of the play in how it is said.

I thought this was quite interesting how they have used 3D made out of metal/brass, as its look really interesting as a 3D installation rather than 2D flat design. Also this has a perspective effect as well as a shadow used. It stands out, looks interesting and distinctive.

This is of overlapping letters to show a 3D model. I like how the letters are build up into a 3D model, as its stands out and looks effective.
