For FINAL CLASS….

For the final class, your final submission of all class projects  (in PDF form) should be pulled together in a folder that can be copied to my thumb drive IN CLASS.

Include:

  • Diagnostic ad ( Shakespeare)
  • Found Type  ( alphabet) poster
  • Kerning & Tracking
  • Tracking  / Word & Line Spacing & Alignment
  • Mixing Type
  • Resume
  • Poster
  • Presentation

BE sure to bring the INDESIGN file of the Shakespeare ad from the first class.  We will do a redesign — (hopefully better, — incorporating good typography practices) It will be much easier to work from an existing file rather than starting from scratch.

 

 

THE Quiz will be May 7th & 9th
