Final crit for And Per Se And project reviewing ampersands and monograms. Introduction to Logotype Project.


  1. Continue to brainstorm ideas for your semester-long project and, conscious that certain letters are more helpful to a type designer than others, begin to think of words for your hypothetical word-mark and continue to collect as much reference material as you can for next class.
  2. Refine this brainstorm into 6 potential words/mastheads/logos and sketch 3 approaches for each between now and the end of class on Wednesday (18 total) 
  3. Focus on personality and context of wordmark. Give it a real world purpose so that you have a starting point for an accompanying typeface later. Be as expressive and creative as possible. Show off your hand-lettering skills or set yourself a challenge.
  4. Collect examples of contexts in which your wordmark will be seen. ie. newspaper, screen, book, signage, packaging etc.
