Design a new generation custom news reader
This class will teach you how to make an effective use of typography when creating a layout.
Considering sites like Reuters or the new iteration of New York Times and USA Today we can see how the web is shifting towards typographic compositions where the content is king and the user interface is minimal but relevant. During this course we will learn how to structure an effective layout for a splash page and a news article template. We will go through the basics of responsive design, grid composition and using typography to build the visual hierarchy of the composition.
What You'll Learn
This is a design only course. No development will be taught!
What You'll Make
You'll design a news reading app that relies heavily on tasteful typography. During the process of creating a wireframe, you will consider user interaction, asset placement, and responsive design elements. By the end of this class you will have a detailed mock-up displaying all of your app's functions.
