Vernacular Environment

  • May 2014

Last week we went out onto the streets and used chalk paint to create huge vernacular letters in Smith Street. It was clear to see that the practice is paying off. The shapes and configurations they created quite effortlessly were beautiful. Of course while we do have fun, its important to always think about the whole learning objective, which in this case was for students to utilise their typography to activate a public space. To create meaning, and make the public feel something. Well chosen words deserve well crafted letters. Its all about language.
