Essential Skills for Designers - Working with Type Online Course
Share this product
Understanding type is an essential, often-overlooked component of successful graphic design. Effective visual communication relies on the combination of images and text, and in a good design, typography can be the most important part of the whole composition. In fact, it is not uncommon for an entire design to consist of the creative use of type.
In this course you'll learn to work with type in Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign. Lessons begin with a primer on typography theory, then shift focus to practical applications, including how to manage and organize fonts, using the type tools, formatting type using keyboard shortcuts, and advanced techniques such as wrapping text, type on a path, styles, custom fonts and more.
