Week 14 HW


Our guest critic this Friday is my friend and colleague Lynne Yun. She is a Graphic and Type Designer based in Brooklyn, NY. She is currently a full-time type designer at Monotype. Some of the typefaces she’s designed include Trade Gothic Display and Trade Gothic Inline. I'm very happy to have her with us today.

The critiques will start promptly at 2:30pm. Please sign up for a slot as soon as you enter the classroom, hang your posters and have your booklets ready to present and ask questions.

Please give a concise presentation of your project. When you present, talk about the following:

  • Give a brief introduction about your architect’s work and talk about why you chose that architect.

  • Talk about your architect's design aesthetic/ideology/practice and how that is reflected on your posters and booklet.

  • Talk about your type choice and the concept behind the lecture series. How did you made that concept visual through your posters and booklet.
