In this assignment you will explore the process and concepts of combining typography and imagery to create effective visual layout.

Step 1.

Photograph! You will need to shoot your own images for this assignment, so your homework for the weekend is to go out and photograph things. Any subject matter is acceptable. Photograph things you find interesting or think look cool. Get creative, try photographing things that don’t seem obvious or you wouldn’t normally take photos of.   Finally think about light and composition how do you compose your shot and how does light effect the way it looks? For next Monday have a collection of 10 photos.

Part 2.

For part two of this assignment you will choose three final photographs from your collection of 10. You will be creating three post card sized 4.25 x 6  compositions for each image. One with the type separated, one with the type extrapolated, and one with the type integrated into the composition.


Each post card must have the following elements:

  • A photo
  • The title of the Photo
  • The Photos meta data
  • The Camera model name
  • A 3-5 sentence description of the image.
