ART 239 Overview
This is an introduction to the fundamental principles of typography, where type is regarded as an image that serves a variety of communicative purposes. Emphasis is placed on exploring issues of form and meaning, hierarchy, legibility and readability, structure and composition, and the design process. While typography is a highly focused branch of communication design, this introduction to type as image serves to open a path for students to study all facets of graphic design, digital media and photography in subsequent courses. Students will use both traditional materials and design tools as well as computers.
