Letterform Study: 26th Letter
Letterform Study focuses on learning to identify and work with letterforms and typefaces.

Publication: Spread of Cult of the Ugly
Using a leading grid you will be designing the first page of a magazine article called “Cult of the Ugly”. The article would be published in a design magazine. Typographic grids control the visual organization of the page space by supplying a particular kind of structure developed for typographic organization. This structure consists of margins, alleys, grid fields, and intersection points. Grids allow the designer to codify groups of typographic information. This process of codification allows the viewer to proceed through a complex page environment, tracking information in a seamless, linear manner.
