Typography Poster using Fibonacci sequence

Here is a poster I put together for a typography project at Orita Sinclair school of Design in Singapore. Using the Fibonacci Sequence we had to use text supplied to come up with a poster that uses text sizes relative to the sequence. It’s a great tip when using type, as the sequence provides balanced text, and it is apparently more pleasing  to the eye. The Fibonacci sequence  is linked closely with the golden Ratio, and found a lot in nature, but for text we use the numbers 0,1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34,55,144 … Then we find a common theme with the size of text we have chosen to start with, and using it to scale up or down according to the numbers in the sequence. A nice handy little tip I will take away.

    Ha! Thanks Suz, it’s a sequence of numbers that correlate to a lot of shapes we see in nature which are supposed to be more favorable to the eye. we used these numbers as the font sizes.

    The font used is called Limerick. It has a lot of variations so worked well.
