A set of posters displaying a plotted cube on an x-y plane.
Published:
This is a collection I'm calling "Plotting a Cube," a set of four posters that display how a perfect cube is plotted on an x-y plane. Each poster portrays its own style and tone, and reaches their aesthetic goal uniquely.
This poster is white cube on burgundy. The headline type is Helvetica Neue, chosen because I noticed how self-absorbed Helvetica is. It gravitates attention to itself; it was the perfect typeface to bring more energy to a solid-color poster
This poster is gradient, a color scheme I arrived to by playing with the scale (as all good ideas should come from). The headline type is in Myriad; it makes the poster much friendlier and approachable. The cool colors of the gradient are bright so as they don't feel to calm and void of energy as darker cool colours tend to be.
Black on grayscale is sharp has high contrast between the background and the object. So it's not as approachable as the previous form, especially with a Univers 55 header, with its large counters, larger spacing between letters, and its inflated bowls (the 'b' looks somewhat like a balloon), But it's one of my favourites because of it. It feels unrelenting and honest.
Oldstyle is probably my favourite part of the set. It's inspired by the 1964 issue of the Typographische Monatsblatter, a Swiss typography journal known for presenting "phenomenon" of Swiss type to an international audience. I tried to copy/steal its tinted grayscale (5% Yellow on CYMK), and tried to emulate that old look by decreasing its transparency, as well as using the same typeface. Here, the head text is Univers 57 Condensed. I don't know if the journal was the same weight.
 These are fantastic! How can I get one?
This is part of my developing a collection of math related posters. I'd love to sell you them! But I'm a noob who isn't sure how selling posters and graphics works. I'm currently figuring out how I can get these to people who want them. Stay patient.

If you're interested in offering some help with that, you can contact me the many channels of the internet. If you're interested in having one of these in your home or office, let me know. I'm curious about interest.
