1. CSS Typeface

Create a complete typeface using only HTML and CSS with a complete character set (A–Z upper and lowercase, 0–9 numbers, and ?!.,;“”-— punctuation). Once you’ve designed and coded your typeface, create a website to display your complete typeface. On this website, your typeface itself should be used as the primary form of communication. You might ask yourself: What makes a typeface specific to the screen or web? Can your typeface have multiple states? How does your typeface breathe?

2. Local Website

Make a website that is only usable in a specific location. It should be designed only for you or a specific group of people in that location to use. It should never be uploaded to the internet. It should also adapt to various screen sizes and devices. Since the website will never be directly uploaded to the internet, you will create appropriate documentation (screen-capture, photographs, videos, writing, etc.) to convey the the website after the on-site critique.
