Typequads: A Typographic Exploration of Composition & Motion

Students create typographic compositions working with classic fonts. Final work includes a series of 3 static compositions and 1 final motion interpretation. This example is by ECU student, Abigail McCorkle.

Typequads is a sophomore-level, introductory graphic design assignment that design faculty at ECU introduce to students in ART 2200 GD Survey. This project challenges students to work with typography and 2-dimensional space (with special attention on positive/negative relationships and letterforms).

In the shift to online teaching and learning, we transiitioned outcomes from a focus on printed final artifacts to digital  final articfacts. 

This resulted in a revised final assignment that introduced students to motion via frame by frame animation with Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. 

Students completed this work in Fall 2020. Designers include:
Hannah Mace
Chelsea Pritchard
William Endicott
Viv Maynard
Mady Barringer
Linsdsey Mumpower
Annika Chhabra
Andrea Cheek
Maddy Backes
Abigail McCorkle
Maryjoe Cortesrosa
