EDM CLUB MEETINGS Coming Soon (Stay tuned).



I expect everyone to complete each homework assignment on time. If you missed one or it's late, you will get a lower grade. But remember, nothing is worse that not having your homework.



  1. Make sure to complete the Garamond g assignment and wrote a comment on the blog Week1HW page. If you lost or damaged your reference g, you can print a new one from here.

  2. Make sure to complete and scan your NameTag and upload it to the Name Tag folder on the Shared Drive.

  3. Make sure to complete the Helvetica a worksheet, scan and upload to the Helveticaa folder on the shared Drive

  4. Make sure to complete the class questionnaire.

Create a gmail account



Your writing homework assignment will be part of your Portfolio. Make sure you post your answers as comments on each homework assignment blog entry. In order to post a comment, make sure to be logged in to your gmail account first and don't forget to sign your name at the end.

Your comments should look something like this:

“Typography is two-dimensional architecture, based on experience and imagination, and guided by rules and readability. And this is the purpose of typography: The arrangement of design elements within a given structure should allow the reader to easily focus on the message, without slowing down the speed of his reading.”
—Hermann Zapf



When you scan you drawings make sure you scan them at 300dpi either as grayscale or color, depending on the assignment. Please make sure to ask people in the labs for help if you need it.
