Before I came to Northeastern, I had never taken a design course in my life. My first design experience came from my Typography I course, taught by Mark Laughlin. I immediately fell in love with all that typography has to offer to the design world. The following are excerpts from my Typography I & II courses.

My final project for Typography II was to source two long-form editorial texts that somehow conflicted each other in subject matter, and find a way to make them work together in a twelve-page booklet.

For my first article, I sourced a piece on the effects of climate change on the arctic; for my second, I chose an article highlighting how Trump is changing environmental policy for the worse.

I wanted the “Trump text” to behave in the same way that our president often does: rude, brash, overbearing and disrespectful, to the point where the article about the effects of climate change was rendered nearly completely illegible.

I spent a lot of time playing with various distorted type styles that were visually intriguing and unpredictable; I wanted each page turn to be a surprise.

A project for Typography I was designing a book of 24 logotypes and their respective typefaces. It was an exercise in illustration and technical composition, as well as an opportunity to get to know some of the most renowned typefaces in the design world.

The first stage of the project was creating a series of logotypes by combining letterforms from the same type family. The goal was to have the eye move throughout the form naturally.

After that was complete, I moved on to typesetting the text and creating illustrated plates for each typeface. I ended up creating 24 colorful flower illustrations.
