About This Class

Typography is one of the major components of graphic design, and getting it wrong is very easy. But it is also not that difficult to get it right and make something awesome! In this series I will step by step go through all different aspects of typography and creating effective layouts which make an impact on the viewer. I am in love with good typography, and I want to see more of it around.

My name is Evgeniya Righini-Brand and I am a graphic designer with an extensive experience working with type on a lot of different levels and teaching typography at the university level.

What you’ll learn in this class:

In this class we are going to have a look at the basics of typesetting, principles of typographic contrast and selecting and pairing typefaces to convey the desired message. Style-related skills which you’ll get from this class will allow you to effectively tackle and make stand out any simple text-based work, whether it is a presentation, setting up a title page for your written academic work or making a catchy cover images for you classes or projects here on Skillshare or elsewhere on the social networks.

Software:

Technical part of this class covers basics of working in Adobe InDesign, but if you don’t have InDesign installed, don’t let it stop you from enrolling, because you can practice typesetting and style-related skills taught in this class in Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop or any standard word processor, such as Pages, Word or even Google Docs.
