When I look at myself, I feel I am made of countless materials. DNA, gene, other chemical elements, memories, emotion, favourite things,
talent, experiences, character, identity and etc,.
These each thing is vital to talk about who I am and what myself is, and they all elements have diffenrnt colour and shape that I made and painted in my life.
My name is Aki Makita, and I can write it as 牧田亜希 in chinese character. I made the typography for myself.
Alfavet is basicaly simple and symbol. Firstly, I made minimal typoface for my name, and painted out the empty spaces by multi colours. It became like mosaic art. I love it.
Through the process to make it, I felt it is just like our lives themselves. When we are born, we have nothing, we just have a name and sex and we were white. But as we walk in our own lives, we will see and experience many things and gain sense of values.
Then I would like to ask you, what is your colour?
I drew Moon, my flatmate while she was making typoface.
‘Working with graphic designers and typographers we aim to celebrate another aspect of design that is renowned in London. The poster is one of the oldest and still most powerful mediums that is used to communicate. It has been used to convey political, social and environmental messages. Posters help sell products, bands & ideas, events, in fact, every conceivable part of our society is still exposed to the poster’
