Requisite(s): 87632 VC Design Studio: The Ethics of Image and Text



This subject expands upon typographic principles introduced in previous subjects. Students are required to undertake or develop: empirical research on reading habits; critical analysis of written texts; an understanding of grid structures and visual hierarchy; a highly refined awareness of typographic detailing leading to the processing and execution of sophisticated typography and print design. Topics covered include legibility, readability, communication-interface and navigation systems in print design. Computer lab practice in relevant software develops the essential skills in synthesis of typography and images required for later subjects.
