Studying multiple writing systems allow design students to gain a further understanding of their own.
Baselines' is a research project based around the idea of design students should learn about other writing systems besides latin. Design students almost always only learn about Latin’s writing system. This project gives a base understanding to select different writing systems to help design students learn more about them. Along with pushing forward the idea of them going out of their way to learn more about them on their own.
The deliverables for Baselines are a zine and a series of social media posts. The zine’s goal is to share a base knowledge to select different writing systems. The social media posts break down glyphs from said writing systems. Both products help teach about other writing systems.
