강좌 소개

Typography is the art of manipulating the visual form of language to enrich and control its meaning. It’s an essential area of skill and knowledge for graphic designers. Typography predates modern graphic design by around 500 years; it is rich in rules, conventions, and esoteric terminology—but it remains an exciting space for invention and expression. In this rigorous introductory course, we will study, name, and measure the characteristics of letterforms. We’ll consider the pragmatic concerns involved in selecting and combining type. We’ll peek into the 
rich historical, cultural, and aesthetic histories of familiar typefaces. We’ll discuss time-tested conventions and best practices in setting type, as governed by principles of hierarchy and spatial organization. And we’ll explore the expressive, meaning-making potential of type. Informative lectures will be complemented by a series of three peer-assessed assignments, culminating 
in an opportunity to design a full-scale typographic poster. Please note that this is not a software course; a basic working knowledge of Adobe InDesign or other 
page layout software will be assumed. You will need access to a computer and page layout software, such as InDesign, to complete the assignments....

I thought the assignments worked really cohesively with one another. It helped to keep terms and skills in mind from one assignment to the next. The lecture videos were great, short, and to the point.

Thanks to Coursera for providing these courses. Thanks to the teacher, it was very clear and the classes were didactic. Thanks to the people who corrected my assignments.

Nice, brief intro to typography. Good, clear lecture content and interesting assignments. I feel like the "by the book" assignment should not be entirely peer graded.

This was a great course--really introductory and yet also really informative. I will definitely take some of the things I learned into future design work! Thanks!

Recomendated for those who want to learn about how to be creative with typography and for designers of course. Letters and words are key part of the compossition.

Me gustó bastante, es un curso introductorio pero que profundiza en algunos conceptos importantes para entender cómo funciona la tipografía en el diseño gráfico

I'm hooked on typography now. I've read a number of the books that were recommended. Instructor was interesting and the material was engaging. Would recommend.

A well done course, but it doesn't actually explain you anything about programs of graphics. Assignments can be very hard if you have never used any of them

This got me started into typography by giving me the confidence that only foundational theory can. Totally recommended if you want to understand the basics!

Muy buen curso, interesante y aprendí muchísimo sobre la historia de la tipografía, creo que le falta más parte práctica, por eso le pongo 4 estrellas

It's very useful and clear, and I love Week 4's project. But the assignments and videos are less exciting than Fundamentals of Graphic Design.

The course was a little dry, but it was quite informative and made me look at typeface differently. I love that I gained new vocabulary.

Nice, interesting course. I went through it with pleasure.

But there is so little information, you can definitely give more :)

Lots of interesting insights and good structure of the course. I wish the areas were covered a little more extensively though.

I learned all the architecture of typography, how to recognize them from their parts, their style and their place in history.

There should have been more content and optional exercise for practices. Also some tips and tricks of using Adobe Indesign.

It is a great start to learn Typography, maybe the course could go a bit more further, and depen the knowledge it gives.

I had some trouble with the final project. I felt like it was too subjective and was harder to receive criticism.

Well-made videos. Assignments could be more rigorous. Not too much overlap with first course in specialization.

Good overall. Interesting videos and assignments. Could go in more depths for a four-week course though.

Very Helpful! But maybe when an experienced lecturer grades the assignments it will make a difference.
