Form and Content

One of the single most important concepts for a design student to grasp is that of form and content. Every design has a message (content) – either literal or symbolic. Everything about the appearance of the design (form) should help reinforce this message. Often times this is made easier with the addition of color and/or imagery – be it photography or illustration. What would your design solution be if you could only use type? The Graphic Design and Communication freshmen typography class were challenged with that same question. Below are some of their solutions.
