“…helped me get ahead in competing for a job”
Adam Feller, Class of 2011
Hometown: Denison, Iowa
Major: Graphic Design
Research title: “Typeface Design: The Ins and Outs of Creating a Typeface”
“I chose to do a research project on typography and particularly what it takes to design a typeface. The biggest impact my project had on me was all of the intricacies that go into making a font that designers use daily and often take for granted. All of the terminology I picked up is stuff I still use on a regular basis in my career. I definitely think the work I put into my research project helped me get ahead in competing for a job in the design industry.”
