This course is an introduction to graphic design with an emphasis on typography. Typography is the practice of giving writtten language a visual form, material, and method of distribution. Starting with type, we'll investigate how graphic design organizes, mediates, and transmits context across a range of media.
In class, we will talk about and practice fundamentals of type including typefaces, leading, kerning, grids, hierarchy, and color. This will serve as an entry into broader discussions of composition, sequencing, and text-image relationships and design systems, as applied to conceptual projects. We'll cover design software and print production. A sequence of readings and lectures will situate our work among historical and contemporary examples.
