Typographic Design 1 (2681QCA)

This introductory course provides a basic knowledge of typography. While it is a strongly practical course, it also places typography in its social and historical framework through teaching the history of Roman lettering, the introduction of moveable type, and the subsequent history of printing. Topics include lettering, legibility, spatial organisation, and visual dynamics, negative space, type specification, basic grid design, tabulated matter, basic text, and display setting. Students undertake practical exercises that will be related to their assignments.
