This is a course designed for people who wish to learn more about graphic communication through type and layout, or for those who work in an area where typography and layout terminology and awareness may be a useful additional skill. It is also suitable preparation for those wishing to enter or re-enter formal study in this area.
Shorter and longer projects are completed during the course and students are encouraged to bring in and work on their own projects when practicable. Students work in both a computer room for practical work and a classroom for developmental work, discussion and lectures.
