Typography Lecture: Learning from history

Online Art and Design students: here's a typography lecture from Dr Barbara Brownie given to MA students at the University of Hertfordshire.

The lecture explores how contemporary kinetic typography relies on historical developments such as 3D woodblock print, Romain du Roi, and Modernist modular lettering. Students are encouraged to let their design work respond to historical research. This does not mean creating something that looks old or retro, rather creating something innovative and new by re-imagining historical ideas in light of new technologies and contexts.

Dr Barbara Brownie is the online tutor for MA Illustration (online) and MA Graphic Design (online) at the School of Creative Arts, University of Hertfordshire.
