The first two thirds of the semester will be spent reading, presenting, and exploring three historical approaches to the page (classical, modernist, post-modernist) as well as re-examining basic type rules in a new context and learning HTML/CSS basics. In addition, you’ll identify a theme, collect and edit potential content, and write an introduction for your final project.
The last third of the semester will be spent organizing, designing and building the final project. A take-home final exam will be distributed the last week of class.

- Schedule for the Semester (15 weeks of typographic goodness!)
- Explanation regarding Process Points. (Worth 20% of your grade)

- The Final Project (research a topic related to typography, design a website)
- The Writing Your Intro handout (pre-writing, drafting, revising, proofreading…)
- The Final Exam (take home… but you can work on it in lab too)
