About This Class

About the Class

In this class, we'll learn how to construct and apply the typographic grid. 

The grid is one of these fundamentals I learned during the first few days of design school. It's also one of the basics I've forgotten how to use it properly over time. How do I construct a grid to aid the content rather than using the same grid over and over?

This class is for designers who wish to revisit the typographic grid, and those who are interested in typography. You don't need any formal training in graphic design to take this class, but I assume you are familiar with san serifs, serifs, and Adobe InDesign.
