Typography is language made visible. This first-semester Sophomore requirement introduces students to the history and current practice of type in all areas of communication design: from the simplest publication to the most advanced information graphics and screen-based interactive media. Students will learn to see, understand, and manipulate the visual aspect of language as a powerful communicative tool. This class will teach students an understanding of the properties of typefaces, their context and how typography helps readers read and navigate a text. The class will investigate letterform structure and type classification systems, typographic terminology, history of type and printing, principles of spacing, use of typographic contrast in composition, legibility, hierarchy, and typographic form as a tool for expression and communication.
