Notes On Designing An Alphabet As If Used for Generations EMJ   Leave a comment

Blue-bird alphabet declintion top of first page E M J

Typography is a discipline of Graphic Design.  This might be my closest inlet to that claim aside from designing business (type) cards [more at pitch or selling myself/contact me cards] for work searching.  This is the top page of the first page of my notes for something I might call Alphabet Declination-a switch-out of the English alphabet for icons of ideas, topics, notions or or and objects or portions there-of-written in a progression to show changes in the writing of it favoring the trappings of great use as over generations.-Ernie Moore Jr.

Writing for an important note can vary from writing to record word for word what someone is saying.  In which case the writing is less big-trying to more fastly finish the letters to more quickly get to the next letters.  Ends of lines drag on beginnings of lines.  Curves straighten.  What was longer becomes shorter.  And except for typeset or fixed lettering there’s a morph.  Here pictures/icons become symbols–letters, yet related to the original subject/basis/framework of the alphabet.  [Note:I like how writing shortcutting seems to match speaking shortcuts an how a language in use changes or declines because of use.  In the languages progression it declines; I suppose since it starts out at how it should be there is only maintaining that or distortion.-Ernie Moore Jr.

This alphabet declination I’ll refer to as AB Blue Bird.  Blue Bird is close to my using the topic initials of Butterflies, Lipizzon, Unicorn, Horses, Pegasus, a signature pose of the Atari arcade game Gauntlet Legends’ character Blue Valkryie, Rainbows, Dolphins–BfLUPBv.-Ernie Moore Jr.

Still a work in progress from October 2012 it seems.  I’d like to finish this, which I might be able to work-out here as I present what I have so far so my thinking can be seen [Note: I like to look at thinkings].  I finised something for all the English letters.  And there is a model for my alphabet declinations, however, If you look into me you’ll see I use photography of accidental or discovered art and camera motion to get images within images.  From these I had hoped to find shapes reminiscent of representative figures/images/drawings/works I might study to improve my repertoire of drawing styles/tactics/techniques.-Ernie Moore Jr.

You see my lack of understanding of wings on a horse inhibits progress for developing a letter based on pegasus.  And a lack of ability to translate what I have of horses to paper inhibits letters based from horse or unicorn (though horse for unicorn is only head, neck and body-as the tail is lion and the legs are deer-again, my drawing and my database for these things.-Ernie Moore Jr.

I’ve done AB Declinations based from automobiles, rain, reading, and a gardening graphics design teacher.-Ernie Moore Jr.

I presented someone with an alphabet.  Not only that but the half used eighty page spiral bound notebook in which I recorded how I went about it.  Perhaps that would be another web log from me.  I told the person I did it as a pick me-up for person.  I might not have started too close to the beginning but might have included the bare bones of Alphabet Declination-an alphabet formed from an idea or an item having symbols which corelate to English letters of the English Alphabet…writing English in symbols from an idea or item, figure or thought with different symbols than English letters.  That’s typography-a graphic art.  But Mine is the declination.  It’s actually a declining while advancing.  To me Language is not stand still except as Image Capture- for that moment.

Spoken English in the British colony, pet name- America, became southern English.  Southern English went to Economic divisions–rich southern and Poor Southern.  Negroes took Poor Southern to the North and Poor Southern became associated with Negroes and might have been referred to as Nigger talk /Nigger speak.  Segregated in the cities Poor Souther took on cultural and situational nuances becoming essentially a Negro speak. Negro speak is an evolving of the use of language and in England got known as cockney.   I still relate the development of English in the now United States of America by Negroes eventually increasingly widely termed Blacks (1964-1967) to the environment of the city-hence saying someone is country or from the city. What might be academically politically correctly called Ebonics Might better be called Urbanonics or Urbonics, because it is a referential and situational driven use of English But so was earlier English based on popular motifs and urgency.

When speaking, depending some on urgency one might speak faster.  In such cases clarity can diminish. what was a sentence can lose words and become a phrase.  Eventually becoming a word.  Words get shaved or lose defining edges.  As such I thought so of writing.

The person for whom I wrote the alphabet was a graphic designer and instructor of graphic design.  This is why I thought it might be a pick-me-up-because I thought someone who designs words might appreciate something like that, or at least the effort.  Person called what I did Art Brute-someone doing significant-ish efforts without formal training.  I came into Camera motion from trying to draw with light using a camera.  I had not heard of Michael Orton with the terming of Intentional camera motion.  Looking more there’s deliberate camera motion. and the term Image capture has been used.

I’m looking for  wording that is descriptive yet separate from what’s been done before that might get presumed as th quality of my work.  I feel I’ve gone some place different with the caliber of my works than that of professionals relevant to photography or the typicals producing motions captured as images in the camera.
