GDSN 130 - Typography


Credit(s): 3

Prerequisite(s): GDSN 148  or GDSN 200 .
Corequisite(s): GDSN 148  or GDSN 200 .
Because the eye is trained to appreciate the sensibilities and subtleties of typographic conventions such as kerning, leading, style, and practice, in this course students will gain an understanding of the vocabulary surrounding letter forms and the design of text.  Symbolic communication inherent in different typefaces will also be explored.  Typographic relationships with other graphic elements will be investigated through brochures, posters and other two-dimensional projects. (Fall Semester)
