- Graphic Design
Typography is at once a skill, a practice, and a subject of inquiry. As a skill, every communication design student must master it, regardless of his or her medium. As a practice, typography provides a space to play and experiment with scale, form, composition, proportion, and communication. The study of typography reaches the core of graphic communication, from the difference between two letters to investigating whether or not the form of a text works in concert with its content to create a third meaning. Through lectures, drawing, and research, this class will immerse students in the language of symbols and lead them towards effective mastery of the persuasive power of visual communication.
