Aims and objectives

This unit introduces the fundamental characteristics of type and communication for the electronic screen and its contrast with type for print media. The unit will explore typographic terminology, structure and the historical context of letterforms and Roman alphabets and their application in visual and information hierarchies within the electronic screen environment.

Students who successfully complete this unit will be able to:
1. Analyse a range of historical and contemporary screen-based conceptual, typographical, motion and navigation solutions, to inform the development of a motion-graphic outcome.
2. Integrate knowledge of key typographers and type design in screen and print contexts into the design of a typographical motion-graphic outcome.
3. Apply consistent typographic principles and information hierarchies to a screen environment.
4. Produce a motion typography design outcome applying knowledge of relevant industry standards and information management.
5. Appraise typography design project work visually and verbally based on the application of typographic principles and practices.
