The assignment goes something like this: you need to design an 11x17" flyer for an art exhibition or rock show. You get a short bit of text, no sponsor logos or anything like that and no pictures. And you get the following restrictions: 1 typeface, black type on a white ground, no rule lines, no boxes and no type as decoration (meaning you can’t make a pattern and you can’t build an illustration out of letterforms). Nothing but pure functional typography.
