I’ve gotten great feedback on my work, learned tricks of the trade, and have been able to tap into a team of versatile, experienced, and professional designers. In less than three months of joining, my freelance business is taking off! While it’s been crazy learning the ropes of the business, it feels great to know I can call on the TypeEd Team for support.”
— Michelle Garcia, Owner at MeeshWorks
I quickly learned how to set type in beautiful and readable compositions that are systematically constructed and professionally presentable. Michael makes the subject of typography a manageable and memorable experience. His instruction was a strong influence in how I approached designing the portfolio that led to my acceptance at Pasadena Art Center.”
— Jena Myung, Art Center College of Design Student
TypeEd blew the door open to the world of typography for me. As a self-taught designer for over 20 years, I had barely scratched the surface of meaningful type setting. Now my world of design is ever expanding and I have Michael and Rachel of TypeEd to thank for it.”
