After attending the Educator Forum at TypeCon 2014, I decided to try my hand at teaching Typography. Over the next few months I developed course materials, and with the support of a mentor, I was allowed to teach UVA's first-ever course on graphic design.
Logo design, editorial design, graphic design, web design
I structured each lesson to include a lecture and either a project or critique. The lectures included the basics of type anatomy, layout systems, principles of good design, color systems, Gestalt, and more.
To help the students learn the most in the short time we had, I arranged several out of class experiences. The most impactful of these was a printing history and letterpress workshop at the Rare Book School.
We ended the semester with a gallery to showcase the best student works. Each student had at least one design on display.
