This was a project I did back in the fall of 2011. I had to cut some of the pieces from my portfolio so I decided to get the entire series up here.

The assignment was to create seven pieces based on a theme (this being The Seven Deadly Sins) and to have each piece look consistent.

I attempted to create a Common Thread (shout out to Sandra Dionisi, my professor who oversaw the class at Sheridan) between each piece by incorporating a human element undergoing a form of imprisonment by a larger personification of the sin. Fancy talk for a guy stuck in something big and weird. Also, text played a big part in unifying the pieces. I included multiple definitions, synonyms, quotes, or made-up phrases in some part of each pieces.

I suppose these pieces could be said to be the ones that really anchored my interest in type. I mean, once I did it in the first piece, I was kind of obligated to keep doing it. And despite doing a whole ton of type, I didn’t hate it at the end. I still thought it was cool.

Anyway, take a look and enjoy.

The Seven Deadly Sin’s by my good friend Alex Rodway!
