Associate Professor, Graphic Design, Iowa State University

There will be two semester-long explorations.

  • Exploration I: This collection shows your process for every exploration, exercise, assignment, and project you do this semester. It must show the research you’ve done. For example, in Exploration 1, you will be learning to distinguish typefaces, the anatomy of letters, as well as the design principles.
  • Exploration II: This is a semester-long project in which you observe, collect evaluate typography. This can be a physical book: (codex, accordion fold, etc.) that contains your personal collection of Not Right Type and Right Type. You will then design and produce three copies of your book. OR, you can design a functioning website or piece with movement and sound.
