Our project is all about typography found in the Fenway Neighborhood area. Both of us live in the Fenway neighborhood and so it seemed only fitting to find a collection in a place that we both have a connection with and share in common. In a brief overview our project is an exploration of different typography found in Fenway signage. The letters found came from all different types of signage; from mostly restaurants, to stores, to recreational centers, etc. Using the type we found and collected we created type specimens, a Frankenstein “like” typeface (i.e. letters pulled from signage), a Fenway reviews poster, and a video using our made typeface. From this project we learned what can be found and made from collections.
For our final pieces we produced a Fenway review poster in our Fenway Frankenstein font, a letter specimen poster, and a video typing out a waitresses/waiter’s speech in our Fenway Frankenstein font as well.
