This exercise, as part of my Communication Design Fundamentals course, challenged us to illustrate the meaning of a word using only a quote about that word and all the elements of typography.


This article is intended for the students in my Communication Design Fundamentals course or, more generally, anyone interested in typography or design.


In the process of completing this exercise , I :

  • Selected the word “contrast” because I thought it offered interesting design possibilities.
  • Drew up pencil sketches and then several drafts in InDesign.
  • Made changes and developed final design based on peer and instructor feedback.
