As part of an introductory typography course at Texas State University, Stephanie designed a dust jacket book cover. The assignment was to use only type to illustrate the content of the book. Stephanie found that most existing covers for this particular title are far too mild for the content, so she created a cover that reflects the darkness of Toni Morrison’s award-winning novel, Beloved.
This was a class project, but the artist is quite real: Kourtney Marie Cecilia Hughes, a graduate of Pratt Institute and alumnus of The University of Texas at Tyler. The final design mimicked Kourtney’s thesis piece, Intrusions
Stephanie designed a type specimen booklet for an introductory typography course as part of the MFA Communication Design program at Texas State University. The assignment was to create a grid, write the content, and design a booklet celebrating a classic typeface. Stephanie chose the 1930’s slab serif Rockwell.
