Research Project Blog Entry /or Type Specimen Pages (Choose one, your choice!)
RESEARCH PROJECT Explore some aspect relating to the themes in this course that interest you and really delve into it to share with the class. You will create a minimum 500 word report (undergrads) or 700 word report (grads) with supporting images or video and post it on our course website. Some possibilities might include researching a particular artist that relates to your work, or looking at something that links several artists together, a technique that interests you, a book that you may have seen at Special Collections or in a presentation in class, a printshop, collective, etc.
TYPE SPECIMEN PAGE Choose seven typefaces from our collection in the classroom (more for bonus points!). Perhaps you choose a suite from the same family, or some that are located next to each other in the same cabinet. Or perhaps they’re a few of your favorites in the shop. Set the name of the typeface in that particular face, then set a line with all of the characters in the case, and one using a sentence that I will provide you. These will be printed and scanned to add to a Type Specimen Catalog that will make choosing a typeface and searching for their locations in the shop much easier.
