    I have been planning on showing this movie to my class and came across your page, I was wondering how you introduce typography the first week.

  • Mark-Anthony

    October 18, 2015 at 2:54 pm

    Hi Mary,

    The first week of Typography is introduced with the anatomy of type. We look at the characteristics of type, the history of type and the differences between Serif typefaces and Sans Serif typefaces.We also discuss the difference between a typeface and a font. Then I get them to do an exercise on how to pair typefaces by giving them a specific company logo and having them match it with an appropriate typeface in order to express typographic voice and tone.
