The Punctuation Project
A snapshot of my 2017 100-day project featuring 100-days of punctuation and typographic symbols across multiple languages and disciplines.
I re-created each one using mediums such as watercolour, ink, pencil, wool, embroidery, nail varnish, stones, paper cut-outs, rose petals, digital elements, my own personal 'creative representation' techniques & repeating 'punctuation patterns' using motifs from the previous days.
Each symbol, mark or glyph was accompanied by an explanation of where it came from and how it should/is used, from the most basic and common punctuation marks and diacritics to less familiar typographical symbols.
Over the course of the 100 days I managed to represent the following languages: English/American English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, German, Czech, Latin, Greek, Hebrew, Danish, Norwegian, Polish, Japanese, Arabic and Swedish (and possibly more!) spanning spoken and written communication, finance and currency, bookbinding and typesetting, mathematics, music, computer programming, science, law and electronics.
