Graphic Design Tutorial: Typography Design & Art Direction

9602 ratings | 346339 views
What makes for good type, layout and design? How can you art direct a designer when it comes to typography. Are there any examples or tutorials on critiquing typography for something with a lot of type? With the launch of a new newspaper magazine focused on the business of design, Chris sits down with Art Center graduate Minhye to go over some layouts.

PEOPLE ,PLEASE. Think for YOURSELVES . Obviously this dude has knowledge. However , graphic design is a SUBJUNCTIVE VISUAL ART . Yes on this case this lady is working for him and she has to follow his vision . But have you noticed that he didn’t really like any of her designs !? And she had MANY good ones to show. Everything she showed him , he would change something. So I ask what is the point !? Do yourself then . That is a person who is Micromanage.
The Futur (21 days ago)
The purpose of the channel is to teach through critique. Min has many excellent designs. But would it be helpful for me to say “wow, this is great, you’re amazing?” Design is subjective. Totally agree. If you don’t want to hear feedback, how do you grow?

I'm watching this for the second time and I learned a lot again 🙌✨

Thank you.
Richy Ortega (1 month ago)
This is really great. I've had many great teachers for different skills. What I saw in this video, and others I've been watching from your channel, shows the clarity and neutral standpoint that allows one to be clear and express themselves in a pure form. It's an efficient way to elevate those around you. I hope your employee's see it in a similar way. It can be rough sometimes, ha.

I just found your channel today. I am working on becoming an expert editorial layout professional, maybe moving into catalog design. This was very good information. Thanks.
The Futur (4 months ago)
Welcome to the channel. Glad to have you here.
Sana Moin (4 months ago)
Honestly...I'm intimidated. Number 1. How did she manage to come up with sooo many layouts? 2. That deadline was so short and she said she'll be able to deliver so much in such less time 3. Your art direction..instead of opening up my vision..has actually made me nervous..maybe because I didn't understand some of the reasoning or maybe because I felt so incompetent at whatever stage of design I am at. Makes me feel crap about myself.
The Futur (4 months ago)
Min is a beast. But don’t compare yourself to others in that way. It’s counter productive. Just listen and apply without judgment.

07:28 "This typeface looks like Bodoni to me, but very condensed." Font is literally Bodoni MT Condensed. Color me impressed.
Sam Pak (4 months ago)
One tip that this guy doesn't do it right, you never ever say I like it or I don't like it...instead use, It works or it's not working. When you are art directing, don't make your team feel you are superior to them, but let them know you and them are part of a team with one goal, to create a ​better design.
The Futur (4 months ago)
You are right. I’ve been teaching for over 15 years and it’s one of the rules of critique. Mainly I think because just I like it or I dont like it. So it’s just subjective opinion. But once you explain why then there is context and thought. So you can say work, like, rad whatever as long as you can articulate the why. That’s the important part.
Ian Quek (4 months ago)
That was a lot of options! But seriously guys, I'm enjoying your content so much.
maalefty (4 months ago)
i love this kind of content a lot
The Futur (4 months ago)
Thanks
Dave Conrey (4 months ago)
I really enjoyed this video, and even though I'm decades in on my design experience, I am still always picking up good things from you. I do think it's interesting how pervasive the broken-up nameplate/titles are being used in many of your tutorial videos. Perhaps it's a trend, and perhaps I'm a bit too old, but it's almost seems a bit arbitrary. I'm a fan of radicalized type, but this seems to be a pretty heavy go-to for the designers/designs featured here.
The Futur (4 months ago)
I think we’ve done it about 6 times. Out of 600 videos. Is that too much for you?
Hetherwick Ntaba (4 months ago)
Discovering you guys only now.... BRING MORE ! LOVE IT.

welcome. we got 600+ videos. dive in.

Akshay Dixit (4 months ago)
This will help us a lot .. Feels like there is a way to make things seem good and everything can be made attractive and beautiful with just right knowledge of design. Need more like this.. may be other projects.. logos preferably..

7.20 "Min" That first layout is gorgeous. It's a perfect symphony of new and old. It gives the vibe of a newspaper but looks fresh and modern. Although I agree, the red dot did appear to just be doing its own thing.
Souad GHAFFARI (6 months ago)
The intro is so sick haha
Y C (6 months ago)
I haven't seen all your videos just yet so this might be already answered I would love more in-depth techniques on how to have a good relationship with a graphic designer as an art director I can see that you use the 3 rule of compliments and then things you don't feel like is working and reasons why. Most of the time you are feeding back 70% good and then 30% bad. Also allowing them enough time for the graphic designer to do what you want them to do and giving them an opportunity to tell you "no" so it empowers them instead of stressing them. is there more to consider?

When I do succeed I will link back to The Futur for guiding and refreshing my design skills. My favourite Youtube Channel. Ty Chris.

I love these types of videos!! The quick critique is very helpful in “learning how to see” design. Two thumbs up everyone! And really nice designs too!
Sandeep Singh (6 months ago)
Very helpful, Nice video
amy tackitt (6 months ago)
I'm really glad I found this. Your direction is straight forward and delivered in a very respectful and positive way. Editorial typography is a weak point for me (I do a lot of digital restoration and photoshop work) and I'm so thankful for these tutorials for my occasional editorial requests.
The Futur (6 months ago)
typography is very difficult to master. we're trying to help
Nasim 1314 (6 months ago)
This is very helpful. Thank you
Alex Bonfield (6 months ago)
Guess I've been living under a rock but I found myself surprised that a boss would spend that much time giving such a useful critique. Wish I worked at a place like that - Always trying to improve.
