Lettering is not typography. It is not concerned with a full set of typographic characters. The limits of its concern are a liberating force. This Sophomore-level elective concentrates on custom display type for the digital age. Students will develop an understanding of historical developments in display typography with an eye toward cultural influence on graphic form. The course complements the predominately text-oriented Type: Core classes by investigating the expressive qualities of display lettering. Students will complete a number of lettering projects from concept to preliminaries to final digital lettering.
