Whereas as the first two Typography courses lay the groundwork for working with typography, methodologies and best practices, and its history— the third typography courses allow for more experimental and expressive application of typography.
This quick assignment required students to choose a word and render it in a manner that the type was self-reflective. Students then explored different mediums and methods to make their composition: Some utilized Cards Against Humanity playing card, some used unique substrates like salt, and some painted expressively.
