Movement Modes: Graphic

Felt a bit of designerly inspiration today (AKA had something in mind to make).

After a few thumbnail sketches not much interesting was coming out, then I remembered an idea from The Creative Habit where Tharp discussed the idea of “finding the spine” of your work. Since I was looking at a movement idea, I decided to take that a bit more literally.

I did a quick pen trace of a picture of a spine, taken from one of my anatomy books, with the type on the path following the line. The rest was just a bit of fun with color and different typefaces to convey the different ideas, without going too overboard with novelty options.
