Typography I (Online)

Why is Helvetica so widely used? Sans Serif or Serif? If these questions sound familiar, this course is just your type. While learning typography, students consider type classifications and production, with an emphasis on the mechanics of type, including measurements, type spacing, and composition. The anatomy of basic letterforms and letter indication are also explored. Students in this course produce a small booklet or a poster.

Please note: Students need access to Creative Cloud (or similar) to access vector-based software. Also required is access to lynda.com; students may access the site for free with a Los Angeles Public Library card (city or county). This course takes place completely online in an asynchronous environment. Login information will be provided within 72 hours prior to class.
