About This Class

The ultimate starter course for someone wanting to dive into the world of fonts! You do not have to have Adobe Photoshop or illustrator to get something out of the class, but I would suggest at least a trial version so you can go along with me. We will go over:

Font Types

Serif and San-Serif Fonts

Font Weights

Font Hierarchy

Kerning or Font Spacing

We will even create an Ad that uses all of these elements we learned in the class. 

I will also show you where I find most of my fonts for client work

I really like the simplicity and clean bold look of the final design, and the thought process that went into it. If you want to see how to use a range of skills from choosing the font, to establishing hierarchy and fine tuning the kerning, this is a great class to take.
