The third day the students began the day by placing each their designated characters from the selected aesthetic on the wall. By categorizing the characters the students then began a discussion over which characters were working aesthetically, conceptually, and in relation to the other forms. The diversity in forms from one character to another challenged the group in choosing a selective set that best represented the visual direction that they thought the typeface should follow. A wall of selected characters was formed (row 4). Several studies were created using the selected characters to find problems and positive aspects of the characters. The group then decided on a common word 'HAMBURGE" to explore individually with the selected characters (row 5 & 6). Each student resolved the word using his/her interpritation of the typeface. During the discussion of these explorations a single example was choosen, (last square). For tommorrow the students were given a few characters to digitalize.
