Project Objectives

GRC 318: a Graphic Communication course studying the application of typography, and font management. In-depth study of communication principles + visual organization. 


Project 1

—technical paper

 

Born in New Jersey, I've always held an affinity to the East Coast and neighboring New York. New York is held together by a complex network of trains, which transports 5+ million New Yorkers daily. How do we bring order out of chaos? Typography plays a unlikely role in unifying the New York City subway system, which is why I chose this article, designed with Helvetica: the official font of the MTA, for my technical paper. This technical paper showcases the use of grids, visual organization, and imagery using design reproduction technology like InDesign.

project 2

—branding

Our next project was to create a visual brand for ourselves. I first began my design process by asking myself, "How do I capture the essence of my personality and creativity through type, color, lines, shapes, etc.?" Minimalism and subtlety is a key component of both my lifestyle and design principles. Less is more.

project 3

—personal website

A key component of design is consistency. With our next task, coding our own personal one-page website, I wanted to keep the same minimalist, playful design and color evident in my brand and tech paper. Our specs were to include our resume, portfolio link, linkedin, email, and a quote of our choosing.
