About This Class

Want to learn everything you need to know about typography from the very beginning? Then this class is for you.

We will review different font styles and typefaces, including sans-serif, serif, decorative and script fonts. We will dive into the history of serif fonts to help you better understand when you should use the many different styles of serif fonts. 

Typography plays a big role in creating modern slick design and we will review several practical and solid examples of this in action. 

Kerning, spacing are all important terms to know and we will review examples of this in action. Type hierarchy is essential for creating clean professional design and understanding proper type hierarchy helps viewers digest large information with ease. We will review several great examples of type hierarchy and I will go through why each one works well. 

by the end of this course, you will increase your level and understanding of typography by seeing real world examples throughout this class. This course is lecture based, so no software is required to learn, so let’s learn together! 

A font paring class will be released to compliment this course, so stay tuned!
