Recorded during TypeCon2018: Xx in Portland, Oregon
This talk will present an Advanced Typography assignment in which juniors from Visual Communication Design and Interaction Design at the University of Washington were asked to design a poster interpreting one of the U.S. Constitutional Amendments. The assignment and accompanying lectures focused on how typography acts as a communication tool — both conceptually and visually. Students learned four basic methods, as outlined in Type, Image, Message by Skolos + Wedell, for combining type and image. Process work and final projects will be presented.
