MGD 105 Do-Now

Today's CLO

Today I will either write or speak about typography, 

so that I can create a landmark out of letters. 

 

I know I have it when I have used letters to create the representation of a city, country, or location by using critical thinking, problem-solving and applying my knowledge of Illustrator.
