About this course

Typography for Everyone: Demystifying Type (Level one); a 4-week pilot course.

This is an introduction to the world of type for users with experience in  word processing on a day-to-day basis. Recommended programs include Microsoft Word, Corel Word Perfect, Apache Open Office—in other words, full-featured word processing software.  Other programs can be used, but might prove frustrating when the desired results cannot be obtained. Access to a conversion program/service for creating PDFs is necessary so that your exercises can be viewed by everyone.

All assignments and presentations allow for feedback. Although this is not really a software instruction class, I can provide a certain level of guidance and instruction when necessary.
