I just graduated from NC State with my Master's degree in Graphic Design, and this final semester was quite a challenge. Though I wasn't registered in any classes, self-guiding and researching for my thesis project and writing my final paper kept me plenty busy, as well as assisting for the undergraduate Senior Capstone course. Since I've devoted a whole site to this work, rather than writing a blog post here, I'd like to direct anyone interested in my thesis research to view the full project at www.hybrid-type.com, or by navigating to the site above.
I'll only say that researching and creating my hybrid type studies was a joy, and I even enjoyed writing once I finally figured out what it was I was trying to prove. I'm endlessly grateful to my thesis committee; Helen Armstrong, Denise Gonzales Crisp, and Kermit Bailey, as well as the entire graphic design faculty, especially Meredith Davis and Deborah Littlejohn, who both humored me by meeting for coffee last summer to discuss my (extremely rough) thesis ideas. Thank you all so much for pushing me to create something I'm now incredibly proud to have written. Thanks also to my wonderful family, friends, and colleagues who have helped me figure stuff out, research stuff, or just helped me stay (relatively) sane during the last eight months. You're the best!
