DES-202 DC4: Typography

Design Core 4: Typography will introduce sophomore design students to the fundamentals of typography through a series of lectures and applied problems. Design students in this studio will become proficient with typography's enduring basics: structure, layout, and information hierarchy as well as terminology and typeface selection. Projects are designed to help students develop an understanding of, and sensibility toward, typographic details in order to create successful typographic messages. The course will first focus on individual letterforms, then proceed to words, sentences, and short paragraphs with multiple levels of hierarchical meaning. Prerequisites: DES-101.
