On Thursday, February 10, 2011, Darrin Scott Hunter facilitated
Font U: Typography for the Academy
Poster presentations can be dull, can't they? But it doesn't have to be that way—learn to articulate your research visually so that it sets your work apart.
By using a range of visual communications examples, Darrin Scott Hunter, visiting assistant professor of graphic design at DAAP, will explain typography's practical applications for your poster presentations.
Computers will be available in the Langsam Lab, but participants are encouraged to bring their own fully charged laptops along with letter-sized printed examples of previous design efforts.
Links for those interested in the typographic information Darrin Hunter shared at the workshop:
- If you had to buy (or get through OhioLink) only one book on the entire process of graphic design, I would buy Timothy Samara’s Design Elements: A Graphic Style Manual.
- If you had to buy only one book on typography, I would buy Ellen Lupton’s Thinking with Type, 2nd edition.
- To learn about how to organize type with grid systems, read Samara’s Making and Breaking the Grid.
Some links from Hunter's resources that are downloadable for review:
