課程概述

Typography is the art of manipulating the visual form of language to enrich and control its meaning. It’s an essential area of skill and knowledge for graphic designers. Typography predates modern graphic design by around 500 years; it is rich in rules, conventions, and esoteric terminology—but it remains an exciting space for invention and expression. In this rigorous introductory course, we will study, name, and measure the characteristics of letterforms. We’ll consider the pragmatic concerns involved in selecting and combining type. We’ll peek into the 
rich historical, cultural, and aesthetic histories of familiar typefaces. We’ll discuss time-tested conventions and best practices in setting type, as governed by principles of hierarchy and spatial organization. And we’ll explore the expressive, meaning-making potential of type. Informative lectures will be complemented by a series of three peer-assessed assignments, culminating 
in an opportunity to design a full-scale typographic poster. Please note that this is not a software course; a basic working knowledge of Adobe InDesign or other 
page layout software will be assumed. You will need access to a computer and page layout software, such as InDesign, to complete the assignments....

Loved that the main typeface study was carried out throughout this course. Loved beginning with the writing assignment and then evolving into a full on typographic poster. Very fun and informative

Nice, brief intro to typography. Good, clear lecture content and interesting assignments. I feel like the "by the book" assignment should not be entirely peer graded.

Recomendated for those who want to learn about how to be creative with typography and for designers of course. Letters and words are key part of the compossition.

I'm hooked on typography now. I've read a number of the books that were recommended. Instructor was interesting and the material was engaging. Would recommend.

This got me started into typography by giving me the confidence that only foundational theory can. Totally recommended if you want to understand the basics!

Muy buen curso, interesante y aprendí muchísimo sobre la historia de la tipografía, creo que le falta más parte práctica, por eso le pongo 4 estrellas

It's very useful and clear, and I love Week 4's project. But the assignments and videos are less exciting than Fundamentals of Graphic Design.

Nice, interesting course. I went through it with pleasure.

But there is so little information, you can definitely give more :)

Lots of interesting insights and good structure of the course. I wish the areas were covered a little more extensively though.

There should have been more content and optional exercise for practices. Also some tips and tricks of using Adobe Indesign.

I found this course, a bit boring on presentation, but really interesting on topic. I also really enjoyed the projects

I had some trouble with the final project. I felt like it was too subjective and was harder to receive criticism.

Well-made videos. Assignments could be more rigorous. Not too much overlap with first course in specialization.

Very Helpful! But maybe when an experienced lecturer grades the assignments it will make a difference.

The course was exactly what I was looking for, I would have loved to have a more advanced course too.

Course stuff could have better interaction and response time and grading could be more challenging.

it felt a lot the same as another course but teaches you how to look from another perspective too

Typography got really interesting after the teacher told many different artists in history.

Very basic introduction to typography. The material a bit more simplistic than I had hoped.
