First Year Typography I

The first years have just spent an intensive and very fruitful four weeks working closely with Cumbria's very own typographic 'enforcer', Rhiannon Robinson (33). In the first two weeks the students were taught the fundamentals of good typography while undertaking a simple* black and white press ad and here for your delectation are some of their pieces:

James Bradley (21)

Katy Thew-Thwaites (21)

Mark Collins (21)

Although the designs do look deceptively simple and easy to read (as you would expect), to achieve this 'simplicity' takes a great deal of effort, concentration, thought and consideration for the reader.
