For today's critique, we will spend ~10 minutes on each person. For the first ~5 minutes, everyone but the designer can talk. The classmate to your right will explore your project, projected for the entire class to see. During this time, we should try to have a conversation about the work, or at least describe it. Then, in the last ~5 minutes, the designer can respond to the conversation we just had.
For the selected direction, complete your typeface (in Illustrator, etc.) as much as possible. Here are the characters I would like you to have by then:
(choose either lower or upper case)
Print out your type on 2 tabloid sized pages, one page with the type at a text size and the other page with a display size
Create two unique proposals (using InDesign, Illustrator, Sketch, etc.) for the website your typeface will live on. Each proposal should include at least three sections: specimen, showcase, state-change. We should be able to visualize your website proposal by looking at these three pages. How can your website's focus not only reinforce but push forward the concept of your typeface? Remember to upload the sketches to your class website.
Make your designs for a 1200px by 800px window, and show how the site will interact across at least 3 frames per direction (you'll have 6 images total). The designs should show how you'll display: specimen, showcase, and state-change. Be prepared to discuss your proposals in small groups.
