Inventing a Visual System for Grammar



for Typography & Visual Design

A series of three posters designed during the Spring 2019 semester class of Typography & Visual Design, taught by Professor William Bevington. This assignment asked of the designer to design a series of symbols as part of a cohesive system. I arrived at the idea of having a symbol for each part of speech in English grammar. The system was designed to work in a modular fashion by which each symbol could sit next to any other albeit fitting best with the part of speech they are most commonly adjacent to. Once the system had been created I set about using it to present common grammatical mistakes and how to rectify them.
