Type Face

Computational Approaches to Typography

04 Dec 2018

This week’s assignment was to make an interactive text. I was thinking about one of my favorite graphic designers, Stefan Sagmeister’s work and wanted to incorporate text with the body.

I was also inspired by a series of work by Atipo.

To get started I used a face tracking library, CLM Tracker, which provides locations for face positions. I wrote FACE on points that outlines faces.

I was super impacted and focusing on finishing my final projects for Socially Engaged Art and pcomp that I left it pretty simple. For my final project I was thinking about using CLM Tracker to better approximate my source images so I think I made at least some progress towards that.
