Typography was a huge part of my Italy travels. I was most influenced by the sans serif type that I saw on buildings. Through my research of these sans serif style type faces I found a period of time in Italy's history that was called Futurism. This movement praised technology over nature and utilized a technique called Divisionism. This was achieved by separating colors into singular groups to create dimension in the art. 
My chromatic wood type was created based on this philosophy. I sourced a font that was reminiscent of the fonts that I encountered and used it to created the two layers of type needed to achieve the Futurism look. The two colors together made the font look dimensional.
