Project 

Non-Verbal Messaging

Expanding the concepts that were explored in Project 1 (below), students create a poster promoting an event. Style, weight, texture, emotional impact and composition will be further explored. Research and analysis of client needs along with audience expectations, verbal and non-verbal messaging will be the topics of critical discussions in the development of this project.

Material Matters

Beginning with a word pairing, students create a narrative utilizing materiality, lighting and conceptual meaning-ultimately conveying a visceral experience of language. Photographic and typographic skills, style, weight, texture, emotional impact and composition are explored and discussed. 

Readings from:

Letterwork: Creative Letterforms

in Graphic Design.
