Strong typography can add so much to your courses. Good type is more engaging as well as easier to read.

In this course, using Photoshop, you'll learn to introduce professional typography in to your courses. You'll understand the basics of type selection, type adjustments in Photoshop and then learn a number of typographical treatments you can use to create engagement. Quality typography can be the difference between a course that's adequate and one that's outstanding.
