SpTp: Design for Editing/Pub
This course will explore the relationship between the visual
aesthetic and the editorial aesthetic of literary publications,
and how design, typography, layout, and materials can reflect a
publication's content and editorial approach. Students will
research and analyze literary journals and small press catalogs,
and consider the differences in audience and purpose between
print and online publications. Students will propose and design
the first issue of a print or online publication, as well as
design and write promotional materials for the publication, such
as postcards, broadsides, social media content, and banner ads.
Through hands-on experience, students will gain proficiency in
Adobe InDesign and other standard software used in page layout
and image creation.
