Let's talk about the WIND, not the weather.

Design school has graciously given me this 5 minutes of breathing time to give you a glimpse into what I have been working on (for my Design 1 class) for the last 3 weeks: 25 individual compositions that convey the word "wind" both typographically and visually.

For the record, I didn't pick the word. It picked me... from the depths of a hat.

This has been a tedious project, and I will be beyond happy to hand this guy over tomorrow at 8:30 am. I am not exactly happy with the outcome of all 25... I think if I hadn't made the mistake of taking 7 classes + 1 tutorial this semester I would have had the chance to focus on these more as I would have liked. As with everything though, there has been lots I have learned through this exploration... and I am grateful for the experience.
