Thing-a-Day :: Day 1

I just did some quick exercises making some numbers into patterns. I picked fonts and numbers arbitrarily and worked with whatever came up first until I had pattern I liked. It just so happened that I ended up with 7, 8, and 9.

These are just quick and dirty--and certainly are not perfectly matched up. I can see all of them going somewhere with a bit more work. I'd eventually like to make it so that the first thing you see is the overall pattern, not the numbers themselves. I think the first one here comes closest to that.

Pattern of 7s

Pattern of 8s

Pattern of 9s

7s are Gautami
8s are Poster Bodoni
9s are Sylfaen

  1. I really love the '8' pattern.

  2. I didn't notice that 7s and 8s were numbers; I only noticed that with 9. They're all great!

  3. I didn't see the 7s at all! The 9s look like a sock seen from the inside :)

  4. The 7's are practically invisible! The 8's were definitely amazing, but I did pick the 9's out right away. Very cool!
