It's one thing to make a message legible—clear to another person and beautifully typeset (meaning how the letters have been arranged)—but quite another to render that message so that it has emotional and aesthetic qualities. The ability to do so is grounded in a thorough understanding of the history of typography. In this class, students will learn how to do just that. They will explore the development of typography and then apply what they've discovered to an engaging series of assignments and projects.

During this class, students will explore the world of contemporary portrait photography. Used by contemporary artists as a means to explore identity, the photographic portrait has moved away from its commercial roots. People make portraits of their friends and family members not just as a historical record of the individual, but also to push the boundaries of what a photograph can say about its subject.
