We see a number of thesis/dissertation fonts discussions. I have never done one, and am curious about the underlying assumptions, which never seem to be discussed.
Who is the target audience? Is it a small group of professors who evaluate the thesis? Or every one in the design, chemistry, whatever program at the school? Or everyone in the world interested in that subject? Or the kind people who paid for the schooling? Or other? Is there a primary and secondary audience?
Are we talking about a printed document, or a pdf document viewed on a screen, or both? If both, does it get re-typeset for a different medium? Are these professionally typeset or mostly done by the student?
Hi there, i am currently in my third year at university studying graphic design and have recently started my dissertation.
I have decided on an area of which i would like to focus on however the subject area has been covered before and continues to be discussed in the design industry of late.
I would like to base my dissertation on print and pixel and where the two are heading. However i am really struggling on pin pointing one aspect within such a large subject (help?). For me print publishing will always appeal to me, the aesthetic value of a well designed publication is what print is all about. Its why I love what i do.
Now i have discussed and brainstormed the subject with my tutor. But if anyone can provide me with further advice then it would be greatly appreciated.
