Special Topics: Typography
Academic Term and Year
Goals: To give students a basic skills in typographic design for visual communication. Content: Typography is an introduction to the art of visual communication (graphic design) through the use of letterform. History of typographic form, hierarchy of information, and the expressive potential of type will be explored through readings, exercises, and design production. The course will follow the design process: visual research, problem solving through exploration, visual experimentation, critique, and refinement. Designs produced will be evaluated in terms of legibility, readability, and expression: the direct correlation to gestalt design principles will be evident. For majors and minors, a 1980 course (but only one) can count as one of the required 1000-level studio courses.
