ART 222 - introduction to typography

In the spring of 2017, I adapted existing curricula for this course, adding new projects and modifying others. Students first learn basic typographic history, terminology, and taxonomy. They then explore design concepts using type through a series of five major projects, beginning with character, moving to wordmark, poster, publication spreads, and finally a book. Although the focus is on print design, CSS and web typography concepts are introduced via the Squarespace CMS.

Here are some projects from the course.
