This course investigates historic poster and type trends that originated in England while also highlighting contemporary design trends.

Visits to museums and design studios in London will provide historic and contemporary perspectives. Incorporating design research, methodologies and their own personal approach, students will develop a poster series which will be curated into an online blog site that reflects the research and creativity of the entire class.
