COMM 239 - TYPOGRAPHY
In this class students will use typography to shape the content of their designs. The class is structured in three parts--letter, word, and text. Each section demands a different kind of attention to typography and compositional hierarchy. The projects build off of one another. Emphasis will be placed on analysis, research, and history of letter forms, type classification, and typographic systems. Projects will approximate a professional graphic design approach, following specifications, deadlines, and presentation. Readings will support key methods and critical theory. Exercises will reinforce technical and conceptual project objectives. Computers will be used in this class. Lab Fee.
