Graphic Design in DLM-TIC

Although at one time it was specialized physical work, design software has revolutionized typography.  This medium has become an integral part of the art director and graphic designer’s tools in achieving visual design goals.  Typography can help define the identity and individuality of the message.  It can brand the work and give it its uniqueness.  Typography ultimately allows the designer to convey meaning by reinforcing the text with a built-in visual message.  Take a look at some examples of cool typography from Pinterest.

DLM-TIC plans to have a graphic design studio as part of the center.  Let us know what types of graphic design software and equipment you would like to use in our center and in the meantime, enjoy this short film about typography.
