Week 9 HW

DO

Condense your 3 type specimens into one 16-page type specimen and three specimen sheets. The 16-page version should show the typeface's functional and graphic qualities as well as the experimental possibilities of it.

The specimen sheets can be any size as long as it fits (folded or unfolded) inside your type specimen. Think about the experience of the person going through your type specimen and choose the placement according to that.
 

GROUP CRITIQUES

In the same way that we did last week, we'll have group critiques from 2:30-4:30pm. Please sign up for a group at the beginning of the class. I'll be around from 2:00-2:30pm to answer any questions you may have about the homework, software, etc.

Group 1 ☛ 2:30–3:00pm

Group 2 ☛ 3:00–3:30pm

Group 3 ☛ 3:30–4:00pm

Group 4 ☛ 4:00–4:30pm
