Hi. Just so I can get some consolation out of this, but has anyone in Computer Imagery or Animation ever had to take Typography as a class? If so, what were the projects you did?
I'm taking it this semester (just started). I think everyone in there is a graphic designer and so are very meticulous. I have always found myself not being able to relate into designing things. While I know all artists are designers in a way, but I cannot sit and fidget over text and layout on a page. I know though, that if I were to animate something or render a character or a drawing I would be just as meticulous.
Also, did anyone have to buy any special paper and adhesive spray for this class? Or in other words, materials costing up to 200 dollars? I just got a HUGE list and I know the cost is going to be very very expensive. Please let me know. I just want to know if the long run I have to take this class or not (my university requires me to take it because upcoming classes next semester or so require it, bu these classes are in no way tied into any kind of animation as such, just designing which are more tailored to graphic designers).
One last question to anyone majoring in animation or has majored in animation (in a general university like the one I am in, or even an arts school), in what year did you start your foundation animation classes and what did they consist of. I might as well know the university you went to as well.
