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.
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.

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.
