    I've taught this class for different schools with varying assignments and objectives with the result being a wide range of expression and experimentation. Students have been challenged with creating stories they could interpret through type, creating type without the computer and interpreting classic stories through expressive type. The common theme is for students to use thumbnail layouts and research to break through the expected and reach the inspired.

    I created this project for Expressive type class at Houston-North to help students move away from the computer when coming up with type solutions. They were also challenged to work in groups of three to foster cooperation, motivation and help with inspiration. Their result was a typographically-tasty calendar.
