The type designer project requires students to conduct research about a type designer. The research is used to write a short biography about the designer and select an appropriate image to use as the content for this intro-to-the-grid project. In the design phase students explore multiple typographic and grid variables to create many options of possible grid compositions. The topics of legibility, hierarchy, and organization are discussed as the outcomes of this project.
