ILUS 323 Words, Images and Ideas

College of Art, Media & Design CAMD Cross-College

3 credits 90.0 hours
300 level undergraduate course

This course informs and unites the explorations of ILUS 221 Words as Pictures with a meaningful understanding of typographic fundamentals. The student will further investigate the connection between the written word and it’s own visual impact and that in combination/integration with pictorial illustration. The progression will flow from the structure of the letterform, to the organization of letters into typefaces and words, to the organization of groups of words and pictures via compositional and hierarchical considerations, to the student’s personalization of this content into expressive and professionally applicable formats via both hand and computer based processes.

Prerequisites ILUS*221
