Advanced Typography / Neighborhood

Posted on Aug 11, 2014 by Andrew Kutchera Last Activity on Aug 11, 2014

The following assignment is done over three class periods. Students are encouraged to really think about the place that they are studying, rather than just creating a slick branding typographic treatment. Students have had great results because they explore how a variety of letterforms can come together in one or two words. ————————————— Choose a local neighborhood with which you are familiar. Develop a list of eight characteristics you want to convey. Edit this list down to four or five complimentary terms. You will design the name of the neighborhood to reflect your entire list of  concepts. Note that this is not specifically a logotype project, although these skills will be useful in designing identities. Your project could include – but is not limited to – modifying letterforms, combining diverse typefaces, altering the baselines/kerning, handwriting, and photography. In the sec... Read More

Advanced Typography / Phrase Exploration

Posted on Aug 10, 2014 by Andrew Kutchera Last Activity on Aug 11, 2014

I like the exercise described below since it offers students a way to explore the way letterforms interact, and it also prompts a discussion of the meaning of letterforms, as well as typographic terminology. This exercise also requires that students really dive into the software and explore the how to use multiple programs within one project. ____________________ Select an adage or proverb. Search for typefaces or lettering samples which feel appropriate for your message. You should employ magazines, type specimen books or your own photographs as your material. You will use your samples to create eight collages which spell out your phrase. It's important to select a wide range of typographic choices, not just ones that make sense on first viewing. In the second phase, you will select the most successful collage and redesign it six times using the computer. Make sure to keep the underlying concepts and rough composition, but test...

Typography / Kerning Exercise

Posted on Aug 10, 2014 by Andrew Kutchera Last Activity on Aug 21, 2014

After I explain the syllabus in the first class period, I have students dive right into a kerning exercise. While the Adobe Software in general and type designs in particular have become so much better over the years, it seems that new students don't really see the micro adjustments that are necessary (or possible) with kerning. So, I have them kern one word using Trajan – by hand! After they layout their letters on their desk, they glue their results in the middle of a horizontal sheet of paper. Depending on the confidence of the student, the hand's on part of this exercise can take any where from 20 minutes to 45 minutes. After evaluating their results, they move to the computer and they choose a different word to kern using Illustrator. They are able to see and kern much better after working by-hand first. After we discuss their digital results, I like to show this video (see below) which discusses the origin and current meaning of Trajan (movies). While the video seems light, it's the perfect...

Digital Story Telling Project

Posted on Aug 7, 2014 by Dawnette Brenner Last Activity on Aug 7, 2014

Students will use Digital Images or Photos they take to come up with a story idea. From there they will get into groups and using brainstorming, creative thought and visualizing they will create the beginning to their own stories. Students will each use a computer or laptop and after a period of time rotate. Students will rotate and add to their neighbors story in their group. After 3 to 4 rotations, the students will place an ending onto their story and begin to find or illustrate images to add to their story, bringing it to life. Students will use Adobe products to illustrate, sketch images and to finalize their stories. Students will end by producing a Digital Story using Adobe Voice.

What's Wrong With Me?

Posted on Jul 28, 2014 by Jody Campbell Last Activity on Jul 28, 2014

This is a project I present to upper level students in the graphic design program. The project requires an intermittent to advance working knowledge of Photoshop, InDesign and Illustrator. I should mention that the project’s intent is not to train a pre-press professional but to educate graphic design students on pre-press processes and how to properly build files that are error free, saving time and thus cost in reproduction. The project is not a comprehensive example of all the issues I present in this class but the first in a series. I may post the complementally projects at a later date. The project is introduced several weeks in to the quarter and after all of the topics contain within have been covered and I am confident of student comprehension. Those topics include registration color, transparencies, FPO, missing fonts and images, cropping, color modes, object layer options, ink limits, spot colors, override master, bleeds, resolution, text wraps, true type and postscript fonts, over...
