Teaching type as an element of design for middle schoolers...

After much repeated tweaking, I've finally got a little "How To" & "How not to" guide together for my middle school students on type & design.  I've decided to forgo all talk of serifs, ascenders, vertical rhythm, and so on in favor of just what they need to know aesthetically to hopefully do a better job with type in their simple designs.

Much thanks to Rob Schwartz who has made a brilliant set of videos that I've referenced as a part of my Typography Bootcamp for Middle Schoolers.
