Studio Art: Typography

In Studio Art class we started working on a Typography design project yesterday and the terminology that goes along with it.  We learned some of the basic terms involved with type that you can review on our quizlet here- Typography terms

We also learned a bit about the history of type to understand better where it might go next. Remember it's not just an alphabet we are dealing with its a living language that is constructed through design and usage. We will continue by creating a letterform design this week (like example below) until we have a full set and then I will show you how you can digitize them and create a font. 
We are completing our Typography this week as the last project of the quarter.  Make sure you font designs are complete for Friday in class as it's the last day grades will be inputted before midterm week.
