Let Your Inner Sign Shine
Zodiac Signs tell the position of the sun, stars, and other heavenly bodies when a person is born. Many have also long believed in the influence of these in one's personality and emotions. As a typographic exercise, I wanted to create unique art pieces that can translate the character of every star sign through novelty stickers.
How can you illustrate zodiac signs into unique expressive type?
Each sign's corresponding element and personality were thoroughly looked into to translate the unique qualities that each sign represents. Varying emotions, qualities, motivations, and more were considered.
The direction takes inspiration from `stars` and how they look like sprinkles of small lights. The compositions were created through multiple pieces of small tiles, like the ancient mosaic tiles of Europe. To add a touch of actual shine, the print incorporates a holographic foil stamp.
The Water signs are empathetic, intuitive, and emotional. They love to express themselves and desire aesthetic beauty. Organic and very expressive letterforms are the perfect way to show these traits.
The Earth signs are grounded, responsible, and reliable. They are always driven to achieve their objectives. Heavy and finely-crafted letterforms are the perfect way to show these traits.
The Air signs are clever, good communicators, and are the most humane. They are motivated to make a positive impact to the world. Humanist and a combination of organic and sturdy letterforms are the perfect way to show these traits.
The Fire signs are creative, enthusiastic, and have the strongest personality. They can be very strident and as some would call `bossy`. Thick and strong letterforms are the perfect way to show these traits.
