Description

Complexity of information and data density have increased with the integration of information in a greater range of private and public contexts. This course involves cultural, historical and practical exploration of typographic and publication genres from a design perspective. The relationship between typography as an expressive medium and it's technological development is explored through a series of studio workshops. Publications such as books and magazines in print and screen media are developed to gain an advanced understanding of dynamic typography, page and screen architecture and information layout for publication.
