Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

3x3: An exploration of systems and rules set forth on mechanical lettering devices based on a 3x3 grid structure
by Fitriani, Vivi A., M.F.A., California State University, Long Beach, 2011, 10; 1507653
Abstract (Summary)

Conventions and systems help convey meaning. Systems of communication are composed of structural mechanisms, which make order out of chaos. Typography as a system, is stylistically influenced by the tools and process used to make it. These works explore a collaborative effort between predetermined design systems and the executor of those systems. The investigation of the 3x3 grid and connected devices allows the participant to discover limitations that challenge the structure of a letterform. These works were developed as a thesis project to explore how predetermined systems affect the structure of communication and generative design.
