Purpose. To explore
the structure of typographic information as it relates to layout
is a black and white project and is divided into three parts.
The student is supplied with a text which includes a variety
of typographic demands: multiple events; time sensitive information;
title elements; text based information.
Beginning the exercise with the most restrictive
rules allows for a clearer investigation of the underlying hierarchical
structure of the given information, before moving on to an investigation
of how typographic 'style' might be incorporated into that structure.

serif) light and extra bold.

Part 3: The text is given in only 12 pt, 16 , and
24 point (sans serif) light and extra bold.
