Project 1

Create a list of 15 adjectives to describe yourself. These can be attributes of your character that may relate in some way to your professionalism but they should be more representative of the traits you feel that you possess on a personal level.

This first project is computer-based. You may use Illustrator or InDesign for the execution.

1) Create a 7.5 x 7.5 box as your boundary select 10 adjectives that you will work with.

2) Set the words using only one typeface. Consider the following: grid, white space, placement (relationship of words to each other), emphasis, kerning, size, all caps vs. lower case/italic vs. bold, light, etc. Do not use color at this point, work only in black and white (no shades of gray yet).

3) Create 2 initial solutions that you will show during the next class. Print each on an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper centered with a .25pt rule around the 7.5 square box.

From that point we will work on refining the project towards a final solution.

Next class we will begin reviewing terminology and basic rules towards typography.
