Working with positive and negative space

Below is an image of typographic text which I designed in Adobe Illustrator CC as an experiment to understand that we can still recognise the original letter even when the letters have been enlarged and cropped the ends off.typography-exersizeI also worked with positive and negative space without the use of a computer, but instead with A2 tracing paper, creating 20 squares 7.5cm x 7.5cm, each square being 1cm apart from the other. Once I had drawn the outline of my squares I then proceeded to trace over different letters from the alphabet in order to make different shapes and effects. To finish off the design I used Indian Ink in order to paint in the outside of the shape which made the product look creative.
