Typography is a discipline of communicating verbal messages through visual manipulation and establishment of hierarchies. All possible means can be employed in the process to enhance communication visually. The goals may vary and whether it’s about the content and clarity or simply about setting a mood and teasing, telling a story or just warning, persuading or conveying ideas, typography is all about structure. The images featured in Clear magazine are part of my ongoing experiment in sequencing loosely connected pictorial subjects. Each group of four images sets up a pattern of repetitive visual clues. Some of those recurring clues can be identifi ed by a color or a specific combination of color, size, cropping, thematic or formal criteria. Each pair of images in the sequence has different common features. Together they represent a system where no element is in complete compliance with the established rule. A series of these groups is sort of a sequence of sequences, that constantly defi es the very rules it establishes.
