I scanned these from a 1949 unabridged version of Webster's dictionary.

My thesis begins with words and what they mean. I am trying to answer these questions;

What does it mean to be conceptual in graphic design?
Is being conceptual allowing the content to determine the design decisions?
Does the concept exist within the content? Is it developed from the content?
Does a concept create content?

For my last semester I want to explore 2 things:

1. Type
2. Concept

Develop a type face.
2 to 3 weights with italic for each weight
U & L case
Custom glyph set
create specimen book at end of project
Experimental type project
Details Tba

Concept book
with concept as my concept, create a booklet dissecting what concept really means to me as a designer. Also as a viewer/spectator in the visual realm. It would operate as a sort of guide through my thinking and as a tool for conceptual thinking.
Concept/Nonconcept project
Develop 2 projects based on the findings in the book. This would operate as a test of theories in the book.

This is it. Any comments or crits are welcomed, please.
