It can take many years to master the craft of professional typesetting and layout using digital fonts, but in this one-day course, you can learn enough to improve your skills for designing with type substantially and gain insight that will allow you to see type from an expert’s point of view. This workshop will cover typography basics, from terminology to the basic principles of typesetting for both print and screen. Understanding hierarchy and knowing the “why” of a typographic grid will uncover for you how designers create an organized “path” for the reader to navigate to read and understand information easily and quickly. If you are wondering if you would enjoy a career in graphic design, or just love letters, words, and fonts, join us for this fun, information-packed day.
