As a self-taught designer typography 01 course improved my approach towards design dramatically. It is way differentiated me from my peers at work even though they were more experienced. The way Chris critiques taught me how to explain my design and point out when its not working/something is missing. Typography 01 course on my CV also landed me a lot of interviews. (which I really thought were not even in my league back then).

Typography 01 was my very first online course after being in the field for over 20 years. I learned more about myself and my skills in the Typography 01 course than I had in those 20 years. I rediscovered passions for type that I had let slip and the input from all the instructors was amazingly valuable. I'm super grateful for the whole experience as it has already helped me in my work setting, results were basically next project after taking the course. Thank You to all the folks that make Futur happen.

The Typography course is an impactful journey that takes you through the process of learning how good typography came to be and how it can be implemented throughout any composition. Coming out of this course, anyone will have a strong set of eyes and skill in delivering substantial typography choices in design projects. The Future team has done an excellent job capturing the history, practicality, and opportunity typography provides when it is approached in a creative but methodical way; so much appreciation for this course!

Riley Jones

Without any traditional design education, I always used to struggle with understanding the fundamental design principles. One of the most valuable parts of the course was seeing the way Chris critiques design work. That helped me improve my design thinking and process as well, and it made me understand what clients are looking for in design work. I would highly recommend the Typography 01 Course to anyone struggling with deeply understanding what good design is built upon.

Who is this for?
05

This course is for any designer looking to understand type to improve their layout and design skills.

I learned more about typography in this course than during my BA in graphic design. This gives me confidence that I can make effective layouts and better design of any kind. I also felt I was part of a community, who learned together. Once a week for seven weeks, Chris critiqued our submitted layouts and this motivated us to put knowledge into practice and submit our work. This course is the best investment I've made in myself in becoming a better graphic designer. And I've invested in a lot of courses and books.
