See what some of them have to say.
Ilene's courses on Typography are jam-packed with excellent information that will elevate the quality of your work in print. She knows what';s current, but also what's important in long-time standards, and why. Just an incredible amount of information! you will enjoy watching, but you will want to purchase because of the sheer amount of useful content.
I bought this and the intro class and love them both! I had no idea fonts, typefaces and typesetting could be so interesting and detailed. Ilene is a clear and informative teacher. I love that she teaches why things are done, not simply "do this". I learn faster and remember better with her style of instruction.
I learned so much I am thankful for Ilene's list. Love her loved this typography class. The last hour of content with Gerard Huerta really took away my desire to watch the content and in the end took away from the Typography class. I would remove it. (insert mouth noise here!)
