Hi Claire, 


I love typography and have collected a few resources over the years:

*	This is a great intro to the history of typography.  It beautifully
created with stop-motion, informative, and a short 5 minutes long.
*	http://fortheloveoftype.blogspot.com.au/ is a brilliant blog focused
on typography by the up-and-coming young designer Gemmo O'Brien.
*	I Wonder by Marian Bantjes is a beautiful book to show students with
amazing patterns and typography.
utm_campaign=Order-dispatch  Her website contains some beautiful work, too:
http://www.bantjes.com/  The typography and patterns made out of pasta are
particularly spectacular! You can also hear her speak on Ted Talks:
http://www.ted.com/talks/marian_bantjes_intricate_beauty_by_design.html (Can
you tell I really love her work?)
*	Finally, I show my students the work of Autobahn:

http://www.behance.net/Autobahn  Then I challenge them to create their own
font from unusual materials.  

Hope these help people!


Michelle Dennis

Dear VET IDM teachers,

I struggle with getting kids (at both yr. 11 and 12) to think creatively
about this aspect of design.

Has anyone got any inspiring tips, resources, class exercises, activities to
get kids thinking about typographical design?
