Great Intro to the Subject
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would definitely recommend this class for anyone pursuing a career that is design related or has design related relationships. Most people don't think about the effect of font used on whatever they are creating from a resume, to work emails, to even posters for an event. Understanding font relationships really make a difference with how you and your work is viewed.
For me the highlights of the course were learning how to create simple and complex visual work with text. I learned how to create an appealing recipe page, a quote poster, and how to create semiotic text. All the steps provided and critiques gave me foundation on how to create with text in my future classes.

Advice for students:
Look at text everywhere you go. Look up the labels or posters you hate and try to understand why they aren't appealing to look at. Take note of those forms that are really hard to follow and remember to not do that sort of layout. Think about companies that have successful designs and check out their website. Take the great design qualities you notice around you and apply them to yourself.
