I have decided to go with my idea of creating the word SUPER out of superfoods, such as blueberries, nuts, seeds, etc, and to make it look like a word in a comic book drawing.
Food provides so many different colours and textures, even within the superfood category there’s so much to choose from!
At this stage my main concerns are:
- How do I make the food match the style of typeface that I want?
- What foods will be easiest to work with? How do I prepare them so that they are still recognisable, yet are small enough to place into the final artwork?
- How to keep the food in place while I’m laying everything out?
- What size to make the final piece so that I can get the whole thing into one photo while keeping the word legible?
A quick play with fonts:
And here is a quick draft I put together using Illustrator, which uses a font called “Bangers” which I downloaded from a free font website.
