CM501 - Design Strategy & Software, Spring 2021 (Instructor)
Project 1 of CM501 is an assignment from the Graphic Design Essentials textbook, but with a twist. The student makes two layouts; layout 1 sets lines from a poem or song according to the rules of type and layout 2 breaks those rules to express the meaning of the words. For layout 2, I asked students to switch content with a classmate. Students 1 and 2 below were paired up for this project. Each worked invididually on each other’s content in the layouts on the right.

For the first project of the Spring 2020 semester, students in both sections of Sophomore Typography II were asked to design a class alphabet based on the architecture of the CFA building, 855 Commonwealth Ave. Students were assigned either a letter (uppercase and lowercase), or two numbers. Objectives for the assignment included the exploration of expressive form making and considering how uppercase, lowercase, and numbers relate to each other.
