Type 2 typography class

You never saw it coming: a hyphen just jumped out of nowhere and ruined your perfect rag. To survive this type of ninja attack in the future, you’ll need to learn the techniques practiced here.

We’ll train you to defend yourself against the likes of bad design habits by rapidly recognizing type categories, characteristics and choosing faces to improve readability. And then: spacing, tracking and kerning shortcuts happen in an instant. You’ll respond to and instantly take down unbalanced kerning. Without realizing it, you’ve maneuvered expert type handling and styles document-wide like it’s second nature.

About This Class

The Necessities: Sentences & Paragraphs is an intermediate lecture-demonstration class for the practiced designer or graduating college student who has some working knowledge of typography and understands the basics of setting type in InDesign. You’ll learn:

  • The typographic hierarchy approach
  • How to handle quotes, dashes and type weights
  • InDesign techniques for applying correct typesetting
  • The ins and outs of pairing typefaces
  • How to implement the process of the typographic discipline
