SPD-U SESSION TWO
Conceptual Typography

There's a world of typography out there, and it's not on the computer. Use scrap metal or rose petals to create unique typographic solutions. Freeze wooden type in an ice block. Reconstruct letterforms and use handwriting. Learn how to use these techniques -- and others like them -- to liven up your design.

SPD-U SESSION THREE
Fashion Art Direction

The pages in most fashion magazines are filled with aspirational images. Creating and using them is an exciting multistep process. We'll show you how to come up with compelling concepts and select the right photographer, model and location. We will give you tips on motivating and inspiring the creative team and take you behind the scenes of a recent shoot.
