Typographic Relativity - Three Projects

Cost: $230.00

THIS CLASS IS NO LONGER OFFER DURING THIS PERIOD

In this class, students will learn to refine the relationships of typographic elements in their projects. The complex dynamics of choosing typographic style, size, weight, width, slope, color, orientation and position will be explored through two hands-on class projects (an editorial spread and a poster, both with multiple design challenges) and a detailed case study of a third project, a resume. (Optional: Attendees should bring a current resume for analysis). Included: presentations, demos, and constructive friendly critiques.

Meets: Sunday 10:00 am. -05:00 pm.

This class will be best for designers who have a good working knowledge of InDesign and who want to ramp up their typographic game.

  • Founded by inventor, industrialist and philanthropist Peter Cooper in 1859, The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art offers education in art, architecture and engineering, as well as courses in the humanities and social sciences.

  • “My feelings, my desires, my hopes, embrace humanity throughout the world,” Peter Cooper proclaimed in a speech in 1853. He looked forward to a time when, “knowledge shall cover the earth as waters cover the great deep.”

  • From its beginnings, Cooper Union was a unique institution, dedicated to founder Peter Cooper's proposition that education is the key not only to personal prosperity but to civic virtue and harmony.

  • Peter Cooper wanted his graduates to acquire the technical mastery and entrepreneurial skills, enrich their intellects and spark their creativity, and develop a sense of social justice that would translate into action.
