Design - Visual Language and Typography



Dec 07 4:30 – 6:00 pm
Center for Digital Humanities
Firestone Library, Floor B

Join our first design workshop, prepared for non-designers with emphasis on humanistic knowledge, to gain an overview of design. We’ll start with a brief talk about different modalities of design, and how design may be involved in the process of intellectual inquiry. With introductions to visual language, semiotics, and basic typography, we’ll proceed to discussion on traditional quantitative methods versus qualitative approach, and what aspects in visualization will affect graphical knowledge production.

During the later part of the workshop, we’ll provide a checklist from the design perspective for you to engage in discussions in small groups about questions to consider during your project development. You are welcome to bring your own project ideas, or use sample projects provided to spark your thoughts.
