Have you ever wanted to learn more about typography? Jen Thomas will be teaching a Typography 1 Course that is open to the public at the Pacific Northwest College of Art starting April 13. Check out the course description below or the PNCA CE website for more details.
Successful designers must hone a deep understanding of typography and of the technical and aesthetic aspects of letterforms. In this course, you will gain a solid foundation of the key principles of typography through a variety of hands-on projects. We will cover technical, aesthetic and historical issues in typography, explore critically the communicative qualities of letterforms in different contexts and apply methodical approaches for solving typographic problems. Prerequisites: Intro to Graphic Design and Illustrator Tool or InDesign Tools strongly recommended.
