Great class! The lecturer was so descriptive...to detail...and at the same time so relaxed and funny. I loved him and understood better things that i' ve heard before, but never cared that much to paid attention to...!
Excellent! I will never look at typeface and daily examples of typography design the same way again! Brilliant teacher who animates the 'deliciousness of an optimal text setting experience' in such a hilarious and engaging manner.
Wonderful class. I have a much better understanding of how to use text in my work. I will be revisiting this class, I am sure! Highly recommend it.
