The design of complex serial publications, and with a special emphasis on:
- Information architecture
- Bibliographical reference systems
- Advanced hyphenation and justification
- Advanced microtypography
The student is in possession of operational knowledge about punctuation and micro typography according to national rules of orthography, different bibliographical reference systems, different areas of scientific and scholarly inquiry, different house styles, and different typographic conventions. The student can in a purposeful and systematic manner handle hyphenation and justification parameters and micro-typographic variables both with respect to context and genre. The student can implement a design or redesign project of a journal while adhering to genre conventions, based on a contemporary and appealing visual language while aiming at a high level of practical functionality, usability and informativity, and which combines a consistent visual identity with an appropriate level of visual differentiation from issue to issue and from volume to volume. As a team member in a design or redesign project of a serial publication, the student will be able to contribute with constructive suggestions about technical and editorial development which take into account needs and preferences of readers, authors, editors and production staff.
Learning methods and activities
Combined individual project and two-person group project, with weekly supervision (formative-iterative evaluation). Sketches, the work process, intermediate prototypes and the end result with specifications (among other things) must be documented in a report -- in addition to the presentation of final prototypes.
Further on evaluation
Summative assessment at the end of term: Passed/failed. The passed project then becomes part of a work portfolio and can later be chosen by the student to be included in the final presentation portfolio of ten practical design projects which will be marked by a group of internal and external examiners at the end of the study programme's third and last year (grading scale A--F). See the programme description for BA Graphic Design for further information about the final evaluation and grading of the presentation portfolio.
