DESCRIPTION:
A must for all who wish to design visual solutions that present clear messages, this course will discuss, evaluate and research aspects of Typography as the most basic element of design. Students will learn the role of type in communication as they investigate 'meaning aesthetics' and 'functionality' of letterforms, individually and in word, sentence and paragraph formations. Through the study of typography's graphic and communicative elements, the class will examine letterform anatomy and analysis, form and counter-form, hierarchy, legibility, type conveyance of voice, mood, and meaning and the use of grids. The knowledge gained in this class can be applied to solving any visual problem that involves the typographic form whether it will be presented on a sheet or screen.
