What makes one typeface more appropriate than another? What makes excellent work stand out above the rest? Want to know everything there is to know about working with type? This course will help students to master the ability to execute design projects from concept through completion. A strong emphasis is placed on the use of typography and its relationship to illustration and photography. We will study the works of some of the greatest design masters known for their affinity to type. "Real-life" assignments will be given, such as branding, book jackets, posters, CD packaging, brochures, package design, digital and editorial. All aspects of design will be addressed. The work completed in this course can be used to build a portfolio.
NOTE: Assignments are worked on at home and shared in class during group critique. It is recommended that students have access to a Macintosh computer and a working knowledge of the Adobe Creative Suite (Illustrator, Photoshop and InDesign).
