Former student and now Assistant Professor of graphic design at Mississippi State, Cassie Hester, conducted a workshop with my Advanced Typography students earlier this semester in which they experimented with physical typography to create imagery for an event poster. They first completed exercises that forced them to physically alter printed letterforms, then were able to use and/or combine their outcomes with various cast, acrylic letterforms and  experiment with light, transparency and other effects to ultimately generate the imagery for an poster design to promote an event. For this particular School of Art event series, “In Conversation,” the movie The Exorcist was screened before a panel discussion about the movie.
