Assignment Objective

To begin an exploration of Web Design for 4th year design students, I decided to back away from complex graphics and build from the text foundations of the Web. Students interpreted their resumes in a form that could be readily e-mailed as text.

Using only ASCII characters without formatting such as weight or color, students were forced to be creative in developing functional resumes that still demonstrated a sensitivity to typographic design principles.
