If that sounds like you, then you’ve chosen the right course.

Typography Fundamentals in a Flash

This course has been created for anyone who loves typography design; print designers, graphic and web designers, animators, sign writers, and many more. Whether you’re a beginner or an intermediate, you’ll pick up a comprehensive skillset through the 73 lectures and 6 hours of content that come with this course. You can use any publishing software to follow along with the instructor; Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign or just about anything else you have a basic understanding of.

Each section the course includes its own walkthrough exercises so that you can put the skills you have learned to practical use. You’ll start off by learning all of the terminology regarding typography (tracking, leading, kerning) and font classifications, and then you’ll examine concepts like how fonts impact a message, and how fonts are used in different media like advertising, web, print, logos, and so on.
