    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is a required course in the graphic design program so you must take it if you want to continue on. The particular class had a teacher that was a tad bit abrassive and rather hard but she knows everything that she's teaching which is refreshing. After taking this course, you'll feel drained and extremely glad it's over but as you continue your career you'll appreciate all the small details the teacher harped about as those details will help your work stand out from the crowd.

    Course highlights:

    This course teaches you basic typographic skills that you will need to know later on such as kerning and leading. The teacher also provides you with a handy little printout called "Deadly typographic sins" which lists all the no-nos to avoid which I recommend holding onto or making copies.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be quiet and take extensive notes. Also don't forget to right all of your information down, and I mean all of it; Your pantone color codes, margins spacing size, and fonts are all expected to be known on the fly when asked about a work you created.
