ART 225 - Typography (3)

Examining the fundamental principles of typography, student work will progress from analyzing the smallest component of type, the letterform, to the complex structure of the page. Students will learn about the historical significance, and the anatomical and organizational structures of type. Work will focus on achieving legibility and establishing a hierarchy on the way to developing typographic solutions. Upon completing this course, students will know how to design effective visual communication through the creation of typographic systems that consider the letterforms, type families, spacing, and composition, and through establishing and utilizing a typographic grid.  

Prerequisite: ART 107 .
Offered even spring terms.
