Kathleen Meaney Teaching Designer
The most exciting part of meeting designing woman Kathleen Meaney is discovering her teaching methods. (Also interesting is the use of the ampersand as the site icon!)
This assignment requires the student to act as punchcutter and printer -- a process through which the history and present-day practices of graphic design unfold. It lays down a foundation for digital typography and color theory, and serves as a primer for letterpress printing.
