I'm pleased to announce a new mini workshop, launching in early February 2012, Ten Tips for Better Type.
This class is designed to give you some solid typography basics which in turn will make the type you create on your digital and hybrid projects more polished and refined. It'll help you to understand a few very basic approaches to choosing and using type.
In short: your stuff's gonna look better when you're done with this class.
This class isn't about making funky art with type, or doing funky anything for that matter. It's a very meat and potatoes approach to using type. But I will tell you this: the reason my pages look the way they do is that I am a very meat and potatoes type user. I believe in classic fonts and clean execution. I believe fonts should support the story and the design, but not overwhelm it.
I believe in a handful of basic guidelines to using type that revolve around font choice, size, leading and alignment. In this class, we'll touch on my top ten tips and we'll work to apply them.
I realize this class is still a ways out there, but if you're looking to get a stronger grasp of typography as it relates to scrapbooking, feel free to check out the description and if you have any questions, post away.
I'm excited to offer a workshop that lets me share with you the area I feel most competent about in scrapbooking: making type that looks dang good.
Hope to see you in that class on February 2!
