Curriculum Innovations

Curriculum Innovations ; ARTSVIS 124 Text as Image This new course is designed to investigate the use of text as a vehicle for communication within the poster and book format. It explores the graphic use of typography, the interaction of writing and page design, the history of typography, writing and the printed page, the use of written form as a work of art, book design, binding and how text as a visual element interacts with and becomes the image. Through projects created throughout the semester, students learned about the design and structure of letters, words and text. They become facile in the use of Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop and InDesign and learned to present their work in a professional manner. In addition to work done in the classroom, students created short videos of artist books included in the Book + Art Exhibition at Perkins Library, Duke University and UNC, and participated in events related to the show.
