Studio Art: Graphic Design and Typography

We will be learning about the fundamentals of Graphic Design and Typography.  The next assignment will have 3 parts and  the first part, creating expressive type design, will be the final grade for quarter 3.  An example of great expressive type can be seen her on the artful artsy amy blog.  We will be watching a clip of type designer David Carson's TED talk from 2009 about the power of type with examples of his grunge type designs.  His advice below is something for artists of any kind to take to heart:

“You have to utilize who you are in your work. Nobody else can do that: nobody else can pull from your background, from your parents, your upbringing, your whole life experience.”
