Writing-Intensive Approaches in a Typographic Design Studio Class: Using Writing as a Tool toward More Intentional Design
Fowler, Michael
Across the Disciplines, v12 n4 Dec 2015
Taking advantage of a university-wide initiative that requires all students during their course of study to take at least one of their writing intensive classes in their major, the author relates how he was spurred to formulate one of his graphic design studio classes to accommodate the writing-intensive requirement. He had been intuitively integrating writing activities of different kinds across all his studio courses over a period of several years, so this external motivation provided an opportunity to integrate a more deliberate plan to his studio course. For the typography class featured in this article, students complete typographic design projects inspired by historical periods discussed each week from the course's textbook and write in a variety of ways about their experiences.
