This stu­dio course pro­vides advanced ground­ing for stu­dents who have com­pleted a semes­ter of typog­ra­phy and are inter­ested in fur­ther explo­ration and chal­lenge. A solid prepa­ra­tion in the advanced study of typog­ra­phy can bring great insight into how text/​typography can be enhanced to func­tion with clar­ity within com­plex projects. Stu­dents learn to cul­ti­vate the rel­e­vant skills required to ana­lyze, design, and pro­duce suc­cess­ful visual com­mu­ni­ca­tion through the use of com­plex typo­graphic sys­tems and infor­ma­tion hier­ar­chy, nar­ra­tive struc­ture, and the expres­sive oppor­tu­ni­ties of type as image. Addi­tion­ally, stu­dents con­duct research in both his­tor­i­cal and con­tem­po­rary con­texts to find con­fi­dence to build their own typo­graphic voice. FRE­QUENCY OF OFFER­ING: This course is typ­i­cally offered in the fall term of every aca­d­e­mic year, though sched­ul­ing may vary accord­ing to future term circumstances.
