Micro & Macro Typography
with Tânia Raposo

This class will meet for 6 Wednesday evenings and will skip the week of July 4th.

Typography is one of the keystones of graphic design, but mastering typographic skills can be a daunting task.
Fear no more, in this 6-week class you will learn about typography on both macro and micro level – such as making good type selections, pairing typefaces, solving intricate typographic hierarchies, fine-tuning long passages of text, and building typographic grids.
Through a series of lectures, assignments, discussions, and demonstrations, you will complete this class to be a more typographically savvy designer. You will learn how and when to properly use dashes, get acquainted with OpenType features and master the glyph palette.
This is not a class for absolute beginners; rather, it is targeted ​towards designers and students who strive to improve their typography game.
We will be working in Adobe InDesign, so a recent version (CS4 or later) of the application is required.

Registration is now closed
