    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Daryl is a masterful professor who loves Type so much you just can't help but love it too. He is a master designer with an acute eye for systems of design and type and what aspects may not be working in your designs. Truly a great professor to learn from.

    Course highlights:

    Daryl teaches you to pick type apart from the bowls of an 'a' to the dot on an 'i'. You learn so much about different typefaces and also about how type is constructed, deconstructed, and can be manipulated in design.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Work hard. Study a lot, really use Lynda.com as much as you can. Email Daryl frequently your designs throughout the week as he can give great tips on what to improve.

    Course Overview:

    Alone, Professor Liz Resnik was not only an upbeat, helpful, friendly individual, but a teacher with expansive knowledge on the subject, going into great depth of the core objectives for the course. I left that class knowing more than I had ever even hoped to learn! The projects are both fun and educational.

    Course highlights:

    What was particularly special about this course was the in-depth look at the elements of typography, not only how they work in a grand setting, like a type specimen study, but how they work as artistic objects alone. This course changed not only how I look at type, but my appreciation for type as a whole.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take whatever you know in your mind about typography, and throw it away. Enter this course with an open mind and an eager attitude. This course is a lot of work, and some of it is hard, but it is the solid foundation to a successful career in graphic design; if you do well in this class, you do well in all of your classes. Liz is an utter joy to work with, and with her teachings, you will have utter joy completing the assignments.
