Given the short amount of time we had for this project, I wanted these designs to be fairly simple while still working effectively.
1st postcard- Albertus typeface:
My postcard design for this typeface is intended to imitate the City of London street signs which use the Albertus typeface, which I think is an effective way to make it quickly recognizable as well as making it visually appealing.
2nd postcard- Manuscript typography:
I planned for this design to be much more complex by having the design imitate a whole page from a manuscript, however it soon became clear that I would not have enough time to create what I had in mind so I simplified it by focusing on just a few aspects of manuscripts- manuscript capital letters. This saved time while still imitating the illustrative style of a manuscript page on a smaller scale.
