In the world of Graphic Design today, there may not be a more confusing and overwhelming task than working with text. If you’ve ever seen a badly designed poster on a bulletin board, you know exactly what we’re talking about. There are literally thousands of fonts to choose from, and before you even get to deciding on one that you just like, you have to determine if it is accessible, easy to read, and if it works well with the colors and other fonts you’re using. In short, it can be a lot. Especially if you don’t have any Graphic Design training.

This  video bundle and accompanying notes will introduce the learner to the fundamental concepts of font & typeface as used in Graphic Design. You’ll learn about the history of fonts, about the various font families, and why one might be suitable for an application that others are not. The four videos have a total runtime of 53:33 minutes and will provide a great foundational understanding of fonts & typefaces for beginners or non-designers who are looking to build a skill set to create better work. They’ll learn the history of typefaces and see practical examples and applications for using different fonts in the real world. The video also delves into the reasons and rules for choosing a font that is effective for accessibility & readability as well as for style and intent. This bundle is perfect for anyone who works with graphic designers, but isn’t one, or people who don’t have a background or training in graphic design but sometimes wear that hat in their personal or professional life.

  • Bundle of 4 instructional videos (Total runtime 53:33) that you can stream or download
