About the Book
DTD Type Studio presents Aesthetically Fly, a collection of typefaces created by design students from UW–Stout. Both the typographic systems and experimental typefaces presented in this publication are the direct results produced from a dedicated group of student designers from the University of Wisconsin – Stout. The work was conducted during a three week special topics studio class in January 2012. Students responded to three projects; examining the creative expression of type design. The Digital Type Design Studio was created to study the systematic methodology of typeface design. The collection of artists and designers looked at the unique history of expressive, experimental and modular typefaces in efforts to inform the design process. Students were taxed with a series of projects designed to push each of them as designers and form makers.
