Lucy-May Turner

I am a Fine Art graduate now enrolled on the MA Communication Design course at Kingston. As a designer, I am passionate about colour and having incorporated that in my work has added to my bold style of work. I enjoy working with socially engaged design, particularly where women are focused. I have recently taken an interest in editorial and layout design and want to build up more experience in that area. One of my key skills is organisation. Through this, I am able to be great in a team and as a leader, which is clear in my process and design outcomes.

Harvesting Misunderstanding

The route that I took in responding to my chosen text was to do with misunderstanding words due to their appearance. I took several different approaches to begin with, from languages to colour-blind effects. Eventually, I was settled with the illegibility of text. I think a key reason as to why people misunderstand text is due to misreading it. This can be due to the legibility of the words. I explored different effects, colours and techniques into making my typography somewhat illegible. I wanted a mix between hard to read and impossible to read, giving people the chance to be able to figure out what the type says. I incorporated motion into some of my works as it led to further illegibility.
