until now the course is interesting I like this guy speaks clear and has excellent ton. Well done...for now.. The only thing is not sure why you say New ways for Custom Vintage but maybe thats on the way..
Simon is incredibly talented, and provides a clear and easy-to-follow set of lessons for how to approach the fairly complicated and intimidating world of lettering as it applies to logo design (and beyond). Highly recommended course.
Great tools and tips on how to better use Illustrator :)
