ACD 120 - Typography I


Typography is a powerful visual tool, as well as an art form. An idea printed on a page can visually capture a reader -the intonation of that idea is expressed by the typography. This class will provide students with an introduction to the art of typography. Students will explore typographical design from simple letterforms to complex type composition. In addition, students will learn the names and subtle nuances of typefaces, and the mechanics of type spacing - skills necessary to become a good designer. Offered fall semester only.
