NC Typography

11 October 2011

Well done to NC Graphics for their terrific set of typography posters. This is just their second class project, and their first with any substantial digital work, and across both groups the results are refreshing, bold and confident.

It helps that we gave them some great subject matter to investigate - an event at the London Design Museum, focussing on a typographer (Brody, Renner, Frutiger, Gill, Bass) or a typeface (Garamond, Futura, Gill Sans, Bodoni or Frutiger).

All the posters are on display outside R310, and here is just a quick sampler:
