Learn to work professionally with Type in Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign!

A little more information

Do you want to handle Type confidently, like a professional in Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign?

Working with type is essential to the role of a Graphic Designer. Visual communication mainly relies on the combination and relationship between text and images. In good design, typography is an integral part of the whole composition and in many cases, the entire design will be produced with type being used in all sorts of creative ways. 

Learn exactly how to work with all types of fonts, how to organise them on your computer, how to use the type tool to its maximum capability, how to format your type efficiently using keyboard shortcuts and loads more. Plus learn a little about the theory behind Typography! 

Join me on this course and start to enjoy working with type and handle it with ease.
