Typographic Design III / Fall 2017

Type of Playground

The goal of this assignment is to explore alternative (unique and new) processes to create typographic design and expand your typographic design pallet. 

Create a typography-oriented visual for a music album of your choice by following an unconventional (reverse, experimental, non-linear and so on) creative process, such as what OK Go describes in their TED presentation.

Apply the visual to at least three different touch points; such as an album cover, website, iTunes/Spotify bio, music video, t-shirts and so on.


  • Week 1: Debrief the assignment, and start researching. 
  • Week 2: Present your creative playground.
  • Week 3: Share your process.
  • Week 4: Present the cover.
