Project Description

For our class project, I am going to give out a .PSD file with the name of our class. For your assignment, I am going to ask you to choose two fonts that pair well together to show as an example of what strong typography looks like. If any of them stand out as excellent examples, I’ll change the thumbnail of the class to match your assignment!

NOTE: If you don't have Adobe Photoshop, feel free to use whatever program you have to pair a couple fonts together! And feel free to reach out if there is anything else you might need!
