Spring 2018

Week 1 / Welcome


Welcome to Typography and Information Design.

We went over the syllabus first; the course overview, description, goals and objectives. Since this course will be built upon Research, Analysis and Process, we reviewed what we have learned in my RAP class to be on the same page. 

Then we had a lecture about typography; what is it and how does it work. As Ellen Lupton puts, "typography is what language looks like", and it works as a human voice transmitter, gesture and reference. Art and craft influences the quality of message. 

We reviewed the assignments and projects as well. There is a lot, but that's what it takes to be a good communication artists. Good work takes hard work. Let's commit to it!

We are off to a really good start! Looking forward to seeing you all next week!
