Project One : Letterform Montage
This project will allow you to investigate a particular movement or time period in history. You will use no less than 7 images to depict that event in creating the glyph. Each letter should be capitalize but we will vote in class whether we will focus on caps or minuscules. Everyone will work using the same standards.
Project Two : Gallery Map
In this project, you will work with one designer/artist and capture his/her style by developing the building or installation that mimicks a letterform. Once the space has been created, a gallery map outlining the structure and helping people navigate throughout the space in viewing the artist/designer’s work.
Project Three : Manifesto Poster
This project will allow you to develop your own manifesto. A declaration of your intentions or views and ideals as a design student. Express your concerns or motives in how you view your current status. What you want to change or what you wish to challenge. Allow this poster to capture who you are and what you stand for. Allow this to be an example for fellow students in earlier classes to rally behind.
Project Four : Typeface Development
This project will dive into the unique characteristics of typeface glyphs. You will begin to develop a typeface around your personal brand as a designer. You will look at both cap and minuscule glyphs and work a unique form spelling out your name.
