Comic Sans Criminal

Posted on Feb 22, 2015 by Colin Byers Last Activity on Feb 22, 2015

Graphic designers have a plethora of fonts at their disposal. However, time and time again I see people using fonts incorrectly. Fonts have purpose, they are part of a designer's tool kit. Wouldn't you want your font to be representative of your brand, product or business? Well, if you do, then perhaps you should check out this link, it's good for a laugh, but it's no joke.

A short course in Typography

Posted on Mar 4, 2014 by Matthew Miller Last Activity on Jan 18, 2015

A poster I developed for my graphics design classes, summarizing what I felt were the essential elements of typography I wanted easily reference-able.  If you feel there is anything I've missed that's essential, please let me know about it for consideration for inclusion in version 2. It may not be obvious from the thumbnail here, so I want to mention specifically that this is licensed CC-BY-SA, so feel free to use this in your courses, modify it, share it with others, and so on, subject only to the requirements to attribute me and share it in the same fashion (see the link if you're not sure what this means).

Copyright Law

Posted on Jul 17, 2013 by marcia blanco Last Activity on Aug 19, 2013

I can't remember but I think I got the University of Washington link from Judy Durkee. I get a lot of stuff from her. She is an AMAZING resource. Thanks Judy!. I also use the article from the Harvard Law Review on Shephard Fairey and the Hope Poster case. They all know the work and the discussion over whether it's a copyright violation or not can be really interesting. It's not as tough a read as you might think and I break up the kids into partners, assign them a section, do a partner read and then report back. IT's easier to scaffold that way. There is an NYT article online that then describes the outcome of the trial.
