Understand Typography Like a Professional Designer

November 5, 2010

Today we’re going to take a slight departure from our normal look at a font. Instead, we’ll look at the art of typography. CorelDRAW users haven’t always gotten formal design training and so they don’t understand all the nuances of typography. How to Understand Typography Like a Professional Designer will give you the history, terms, types of fonts and tips for usage in one concise post. Take a few minutes and you’ll understand typography much better. Next week we’ll get back to the fonts!
