The use of typography as the basic material of communication is the focus of this course. We will study the proportions and character of typefaces while stressing the importance of typography in visual communication. Students will be encouraged to explore and appreciate typography through experimentation. Assignments range from posters, book jackets and typographical op-ed illustrations to an assortment of more conceptual projects. NOTE: Although not required, it is recommended that students have access to a Macintosh computer and a working knowledge of Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop and InDesign.
