Biography of Typography Influence
Typography has helped me to see that there is more to art than just pictures and sculptures. I have learned that the way we use type affects the way a message is communicated just as much as a photograph, painting, or sculpture would. I have also learned to notice details around me, especially dealing with type anatomy. Before I took typography, I never realized there was so much that you could study about type. Like the different x-heights fonts can have... or how some fonts have serifs and some do not. Learning all of this has helped me to better know what decisions to make a designer when it comes to adding type to my designs.

“100 Wishes” Poster Designs
“100 Wishes” project was to celebrate Rosa Parks one hundredth birthday. Students from all over Alabama wrote what their wish was for their community. We took some of their wishes, as well as some of ours, and designed a poster for them.

The American Democracy Project was having a logo design contest and our class decided to design and enter our designs. We researched and discussed what the best solutions would be.
The Center of Student Success (Eldridge of Student Hall) asked our class toCenter create a wayfinding case study. As a class we researched and studied what the best way to design the wayfinding signs would be. We designed our own ideas, then colaborated and chose what we thought would be the best design.

Stylized Type Posters
This was the last project in the class. We were to design large-scale posters that could be printed for display. We were to incorporated type in a creative way. For Poster 1, I chose to create a poster for a quote by Paul Rand. For Poster 2, I chose to create my own characters that spelled â€œinspire.â€?
