As illustrators, we are often called upon to respond to a written text, or our work may include our own fiction or non-fiction writing. This course considers writing both as a visual element and for its narrative content. Students will address the aesthetic considerations of creating letterforms and incorporating type into an image. They will learn the basic elements of typographic design, gaining familiarity with leading, kerning, serifs, etc. They will also be required to write their own stories in various forms. Assignments will ask students to write in a variety of forms, including but not limited to: the short story, narrative non-fiction, dialogue for a graphic novel or comic, captions for single-panel images, and annotations for reportorial drawings. Students will work with hand-written text as well and may also create their own digital typefaces. Some assignments will require students to solve illustrative problems solely through letterforms. They will explore the way words and pictures interact to create meaning.
