About This Class

Are you a print designer that is a wiz at Adobe InDesign or Illustrator and wants to reproduce typography from your print designs for the web? In this class, you’ll learn the differences between desktop and web fonts, how to add fonts to a website, and the basic HTML and CSS code for setting and styling type.

For our class project, you’ll design a simple text mockup in Adobe InDesign or Illustrator, then translate your text design for the web by creating a web page with HTML and CSS. No prior coding skills required!
