CAMD Cross-College

3 credits 90.0 hours
600 level graduate course

This course will focus on the development of each student’s independent visual voice in applied, investigative and experimental elements of design, book arts and printmaking in association with creative writing. Projects will focus on exploring the relationship between text and image and an integration of the fine and design arts. The ability to augment language proficiency on both verbal and written levels will be stressed. The grid and essential design elements will be covered in order to institute an understanding of typographic canons. Additionally, students will create their own typeface. A myriad of writing exercises will complement major projects completed over the semester. Supplemental writing workshops will be organized throughout the semester.
