Use Fewer Fonts Top

January 5, 2011


When I made the cling film dress it was hard to take apart without ruining it, so I made this top aswell. The basis material is made from layers of cellotape onto one another and I even made cellotape buttons so that everything would be translucent. I then placed the letters on top and layered more tape so that they became a part of the top itself. One of the rules of typography, use fewer fonts. Too many fonts/typefaces can be confusing and quite irritating really so I feel that my overly ‘fonted’ top portrays this rule well.
