Graphic Design: Typography Camp

This introductory class is designed to expose students to the complexity and importance of typography in our society. You will learn about and practice typographic techniques using digital and traditional haptic methods to increase your understanding of the discipline. Students will be able to implement a final project to develop a broadside/lyric poster and typography. This poster may be inspired by lyric videos and songs you love.

Students should leave the class with an ability to discuss typography with designers more robustly, allowing them to be more productive members of a project team or informed members of the citizenry.
