LEARN ABOUT TYPE FROM A FORMER TYPESETTER!
We'll begin with the basics of typography including the various font styles, then get into selecting fonts, kerning letter spacing, adding glyphs (swashes, etc.), and pairing fonts.
Then you'll learn how to create your own word art for use on photos, cards, posters and making your own wall art. You'll add depth and dimension to your word art with layer styles and text effects, and I'll supply a list of resources.
