nine typography treatments composed in a square

Exercise No. 1 [typography]

Working in black and white, individually typeset each of your nine words in order to illustrate an inherent meaning or feeling. Use nine unique typefaces that relate to the words in various ways.

After multiple permutations have been created and many ideas have been exhausted, compose the most compelling nine words into a square composed of nine sub-squares. Use Adobe Illustrator to set your type and build your final compositions.
