Description: This course offers further critical study of typographic design with an emphasis on the meaning and application of typography solutions created through experimentation with digital form, function, and aesthetics. How typographic form affects meaning in various social, cultural and historical communication contexts is examined and is the basis for in-depth study. Students refine their digital design abilities, using typography in assignments of increasing difficulty while further developing critical conceptualization, authoring and research skills.
