In this project we’ll be compiling, examining, replicating, and redesigning instances of type doing a job.

We’ll be looking at types of information/types of communication and the ways they visually manifest themselves into typography.

Examples of Typographic Instances

Week 14 Day 2

Today in class, we are:

Turning in Modified Type/WHO posts/posters!

Talking about our new project, Typographic Instances/Working Type


For next time:

  • Find 12 or more examples (photos!). Normally I’d say go take all these pictures. But since we can’t do that as much, it’s ok to use photos you took a while back and it’s ok to find things online.
  • Read Michael Bierut’s Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Typeface
  • Look over everyone’s finished WHO/Modified Type Posters and comment on at least 3

WHO/Modified Type Turn-In

Turn in your final WHO/Modified Type posters/posts here.

WHO Submission

This is optional. For people who want to submit their projects to the WHO/UN competition.

The deadline for submission is this Thursday 2/9.

Follow this link and click the green “Participate” button. They’ll ask you to sign up for an account and submit your images.

UN Global Call to Help Stop the Spread of Coronavirus

Note that you need to upload your files as Illustrator or Photoshop files. So, if you’re using Illustrator and you have external images, make sure you Package your files. (that link is how to package files)

That also means you should clean up your files. Don’t leave extra artboards or a bunch of things hanging out off the artboards.

Again, this is optional. It means you need to finish or nearly finish your next round of this project a few days early.
