ART 226 - Typography


This course will examine basic typography as a compositional tool and is an introduction to communication problem solving through the visual medium of language. The basic tenants such as parts of the letter, font families, specification, kerning, tracking, leading, visual spacing, text vs. display type, ligatures, avoiding widows, orphans, and rivers, appropriate use of hyphenation, alignment, etc., will be discussed and applied. Employing experimental and practical projects, the course will explore the architecture of type from a single letterform to an entire page layout. (3) T1 IC
