Unit 5: Posters in Illustrator/Learning about Typography
Essential Question: Why is typography important to your design
Unit Overview: In this project, you will learn about typography. Typography is the font that a designer uses on a publication or piece of work. There are many things to think about in terms of typography. You will learn the difference between serif and sans serif, learn some new typography vocabulary, and also learn about which fonts go well together. After learning important concepts of typography you will apply them to make a text-based poster. This is a poster where the main focus of the poster is on the words (and therefore the font as well).
