I have an assignment where I need to create an image only using typography yet and I think it is similar to Ascii Art, am I correct? Or what is this type of design called?

Haven't heard the term ASCII art in years - takes me back to the days of perforated paper rolls and daisy wheel printers. In that style, you're using letters as is to create a design/portrait affect. Incredibly creative way of using typography. But in the digital age, there's a genre called Typographic Portraiture. Here you're manipulating the letters and words - stretching, compressing, warping - to create a visual effect. More of an illustration effect than unaltered typefaces.Interesting samples here from several artists: https://www.domestika.org/en/blog/3558-5-typographic-portrait-artists-that-will-inspire-you As mentioned, might be worth clarifying with your instructor - although you can take the creative initiative and interpret it on your own.
