Welcome to your GRA 217 class blog. . . home of the Inglorious Baselines!

Welcome to your GRA 217 blog. Take a look around. Get yourself acquainted, this is where you’ll be posting your blog assignments each week. As you can see, we’re rolling with a winter theme for now. I really look forward to meeting and working with each one of you this semester during what I’m sure is going to be a fun and informative class.

As Darren mentioned in class, please don’t hesitate to come to either one of us if you have a question or need help. That’s what we’re here for. In order to be successful in this class, you’ll have to have some outside input on your designs, and that’s where we come in. I hope you’ll all take that into consideration as we move forward in this class.

For now, let’s get the blogging started. Here’s your first blog topic:

Take a photo or scan an image of an example of typography. Typography is all around us, and you’ll start to notice it more while taking this class. Find something that you find to be an interesting use of typography. After you upload your example, give an explanation of what stood out to you about the image. Also, to make it easier for me, label your post as follows: LastName – Typography – Post 1. What you decide to call it, in this case “Typography,” can vary slightly, but the important thing to do is label it with your last name and the post number.

Remember your blog posts are due Monday night’s by 11:59 p.m. and your comments are due Wednesday night’s by 11:59 p.m.

Good luck, and happy blogging!

– Tim
