Spend four evenings building confidence in typography at the page level, including type selection, hierarchy, grids, and layout.

One of the most important work tools within graphic design is typographic management. Aimed at professionals and students who want to expand and improve the quality of their work, this course will exemplify and put into practice typesetting exercises in different media, and raise our awareness of space, grid, hierarchy, text boxes, and paragraph arrangement and design, with a focus on readability. We will break down some examples and complement the lectures with discussions and readings.

Classes will be held 5:00pm–8:00pm on Wednesday, March 17; Thursday, March 18, Wednesday, March 24, and Thursday, March 25.
