In this course I have learned many things, like the whole history behind Typography. I would never have guessed that all of these things were so important to be a designer. All iv'e ever wanted to do was draw, color and paint. Drawing was my strong point, not all of this digital stuff with type and fonts all of the uploading and downloading. I really thought that typography was going to be a breeze. I came into this course fresh and dumb, I thought it was a complete joke. I found out different very fast.

I have to admit that one of the things that have stuck with me and i think about it all the time, is that its unprofessional to outline a title or type. Maybe the reason why i think about it so much is because i see it all the time. Now when I see it in public places I laugh to myself. Iv'e also learned how to sketch a font, which i really enjoy doing. Iv'e also learned partially about grids i'm sure we will learn more this coming week.


  1. Tocara. I agree with you completely on the history thing. It goes pretty deep. Pictures and the beginning forms of art are from the same thing that Typography is from which is crazy. Although I don't agree completely with the outline thing which may be a personal bad choice about the outlines. I think every once in a while it would be okay but only being very specific on what the piece is.

  2. What is another key element that you think is important to learn and know about? What would you tell someone whom is trying to come into this program?
