I have used the Oriya script as a part of my advanced typography course. Oriya belongs to the Brahmi script but has been hugely influenced by Dravidian scripts; hence the complete structures and beautiful curves.
These are bi-lingual posters of an Oriya poem which translates as, " A morning in winter " by Mayadhar Mansingh.
Three oriya melodramatic love quotes have been used on a diary, a t - shirt, and a A1 size poster.
" One plus one in math makes two, but one plus one in oriya makes One "
I've tried to show how the letters are merging into each other, almost like closing in together; or in the process of it. Through this I've tried to represent the merger of one and one in love.
" You are my tuberose, and I am your flower garland "
This shirt has a graphic that runs from front to the back. Using type I've tried to represent the feeling of a garland running through the t shirt.
" I wish we had met earlier, because then we would have had more time to embrace the warmth of each others lips or embrace the kiss "
The poster has many hate words in red, and the love quote trickles out of/down from the hate words. I've tried to highlight the melodrama of the quote by bringing about contrast between hate and love words in the poster.
