Brief: Typography is, quite simply, the art and technique of arranging type.It's central to the work and skills of a designer and is about much more than making the words legible. Your choice of typeface and how you make it work with your layout, grid, colour scheme, design theme will make the difference between a good, bad and great design. Good typography is partly down to creative intuition, but it's impossible to become skilled in typography without understanding the basic rules of the craft – even if you mean to break them.
To produce 3 type specimen books produced in InDesign, and a body of work that reflects the workshops throughout the module.Aims
• To explore the relationship of image and text as a major component of illustration and graphic design practices.
• To develop skills and awareness of both digital and hand-drawn image and type making techniques, and appropriate applications.
• To develop an awareness of visual styles (illustrative and typographic)and their relationship to contemporary communications practice.
• To experiment with the integration of image with text.• You must evidence all aspects of the work produced during the workshops.
