Today I had my first typography lesson.
Basically we were showen different exam works, which were alltogether different, ranging from children’s books to animation and games.
Then the professor gave us two helpful links “every design/art student should visit on a daly basis”. But see for yourself: Fontblog and Slanted. As far as I can see there are no English versions available.
And finally we got our first 2 homeworks.
- Pick a favorite letter or number, find at least 25 versions in your everyday life and take photos. Organize the images on your computer, sort them in different categories and print them out. (3 weeks time)
- Write your name with an exceptional font the professor can remember 🙂 (1 week time)
Well that’s that. More from typography next week!
