Studio Art: Type Design Basics

In studio art we are currently working on our graphic design unit and we are now beginning type design.  Above is a video from artist Sean McCabe and below is a video from artist Dave Foster showing off their type design skills and we will be following a very similar process to design fonts then import them into Photoshop to create a poster with.  Today we will begin by taking a quick look at the film Helvetica about one of the world's most influential and used fonts then we will go over the basics and sketch out 10 original ideas for fonts in our sketchbooks.
