The following projects were constructed by students attending Concordia University Irvine, while enrolled in the Visual Arts/Graphic Design Program ARTG 460-Typography 2 course. In this course students were exposed to design theory and current design techniques relating to Font Design, while expanding their knowledge and abilities in digital design software like Adobe Creative Could (Adobe CC Photoshop & Illustrator) and Fontself (a font creation program). Students were first introduced to techniques on how to create a fully readable font from A-Z with basic punctuation and numbers from 0-9. Students designed fonts out of 3D objects, created founts from original hand drawings and then vectorizing them in Adobe Illustrator, and assembling them with the program Fontself to make a functioning OTF file. The projects displayed below were create using the following guidelines:
- Students were utilizing Adobe Illustrator software to map vectorize original sketches A-Z, 0-9 and punctuation.
- Students were utilizing Adobe Photoshop software to edit photos of letters assembled from 3D objects found around the home, and create a functioning Raster Font file.
- Students were required to create one hand written font and vectorize and assemble the font in Adobe Illustrator and to create a functioning OTF file.
- Students were asked to create a series of inspirational and display posters for this course.
