Students learn about formal, conceptual and functional aspects of this discipline. The course covers a wide range of topics, from history of typefaces, to their selection and uses, to fine-tuning of typographic layouts. The course addresses the diverse nature of typographical application through hands-on projects, discussion, and presentations. Readings will be assigned throughout the semester. The projects become increasingly challenging as the semester progresses. A basic knowledge of the computer is required by week three, and a solid understanding of a page layout program (InDesign) is required by week eight.
