From the instructor:

My business took a hit when I wasn’t invoicing properly.

Believe me, I truly wish I didn't have a hard lesson about getting paid... but I do.

I've been through it all: from clients disappearing with my work (and their checkbook) to a client claiming a fraudulent charge on their credit card... eight months after I finished the job.

And you know what? I wasn't alone. All of my designer, developer, and copywriter friends seemed to have a similar story! I didn't understand why some clients seemed to disregard creatives.

I’m sure you’ve been through one of these scenarios:

  • You received a late payment
  • You finished a project without getting paid
  • A client flipped pricing around halfway through the engagement
  • You lost track of which clients paid what

Any one of these cases can totally take a hit on your business and your creative spirit. I know because it happened to me more than a few times when I was growing my own business.

If you've been burned like I have, you know exactly how this feels: a mixture of embarrassment and shame followed and fueled by self-righteous rage.

I got sick of having that feeling... and wound up not trusting my clients before we even began.

Something had to change.

I began to investigate how 'real' businesses billed their clients, and stumbled into the deep well of invoicing. What I discovered was a tried-and-true process for creating invoices, sending them, and following up with your clients that I've used successfully for years. I just wish I knew this stuff sooner.

You've probably heard this from me before, but I learn by getting punched in the face... and that's a pain I want to help each and every one of you prevent. That's why I'm here. That's why I do this.

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).

Ayesha Haroon

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.
