Type Crimes Poster Project

I have been using this project in Typography for the past four years and this year for the first time I realized that it was even more significant than I thought. The primary purpose is to expose the students to some of the basic do’s and don’ts in type usage as it pertains to print design. In addition, as I realized this semester, it is our students” first real Graphic Design project. Prior to this project they are exposed to Foundation projects that deal with design principals and elements and in Illustration class they deal exclusively with illustration projects and in Computer Graphics they deal with projects and exercises that teach them software. This project puts all the elements and principles together with illustration and computer skills and does it on a large scale. Who knew it was so important!

Here are some of the results from this years group. Good work and congratulations on the completion of your first major Graphic Design project!
