Designing with Type (DGRD 1020)

It is the goal of this course that students will be able to identify the key factors that inform a designer's selection and use of type within design projects. Students will acquire a keen eye for the physical attributes of letterforms as they use industry standard tools to build and manage font collections, make appropriate and informed type selections, and apply type strategies that effectively communicate design project objectives. Students will be able to meet all technical requirements and deadlines when taking their solutions to production. While working through these concepts, students will develop a proficiency in Adobe Illustrator and font management software.
