About This Class
Typography changes the mood and feeling of your message, especially on the web. Your typographic choices express a point of view and affect the overall design of your website and brand.
In this class, we’ll explore the history and importance of typography, examples of different typographic use cases and the criteria for choosing the right typography for your message.
At the end of the course, you’ll put your new knowledge into practice to create two distinct web style guides of your own, using resources available to everyone, so you will be one step closer to a clearer, more impactful website!

lovely brief class and a great introduction to thinking about typography in a more meaningful way - studying the details of the font and comparing similar ones together until you find the perfect match. The project was wonderfully laid out and a pleasure to complete with the worksheet provided - an added benefit is that I can use a similar stylesheet layout when planning my own website's typography and style, so thank you for showing me how it's done! would definitely recommend to anyone looking to dip their toe in the water :)
I found this course useful as an entrepreneur. It helped me understand the creative process behind choosing fonts. Even though I'm using a designer to create my logo, this course helped me express what I want to convey from the design.
