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.
Last week was the beginning of Semester Two of the never-ending MFA program I got myself into (why do I do this to myself!?). I am a little more organized this semester. I bought a 3-subject, college-ruled notebook with dividers and pockets. And I revamped my blog so I can try to share what I’m up to with my 2 followers–one of whom is my mom, Hi Mama!
Our first project was pretty simple. A warm-up for the punishment that is to come, I’m sure. We each prepared something to introduce ourselves, using only type. So … I designed a poster, featuring my scarf collection… tada!
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.
