This was an excellent course. I learned a whole lot about typography. The videos and assignments were interesting and challenging. I'm happy I was able to complete this course and highly recommend it!
I thought the assignments worked really cohesively with one another. It helped to keep terms and skills in mind from one assignment to the next. The lecture videos were great, short, and to the point.

In general a great course where you learn a lot about typography. But it was a little to easy I think. Worked through this course in 1 week and didn't feel pressured at all.

Thoroughly enjoyable and didactic! Some further elaboration on each subject would do it merit. Poster design should be optional — not everyone is keen on handling software.

Thanks to Coursera for providing these courses. Thanks to the teacher, it was very clear and the classes were didactic. Thanks to the people who corrected my assignments.

Nice, brief intro to typography. Good, clear lecture content and interesting assignments. I feel like the "by the book" assignment should not be entirely peer graded.
By Katie S•
This was a great course--really introductory and yet also really informative. I will definitely take some of the things I learned into future design work! Thanks!

Recomendated for those who want to learn about how to be creative with typography and for designers of course. Letters and words are key part of the compossition.

Me gustó bastante, es un curso introductorio pero que profundiza en algunos conceptos importantes para entender cómo funciona la tipografía en el diseño gráfico
I'm hooked on typography now. I've read a number of the books that were recommended. Instructor was interesting and the material was engaging. Would recommend.

A well done course, but it doesn't actually explain you anything about programs of graphics. Assignments can be very hard if you have never used any of them
By Alvaro M•
This got me started into typography by giving me the confidence that only foundational theory can. Totally recommended if you want to understand the basics!

Muy buen curso, interesante y aprendí muchísimo sobre la historia de la tipografía, creo que le falta más parte práctica, por eso le pongo 4 estrellas

It's very useful and clear, and I love Week 4's project. But the assignments and videos are less exciting than Fundamentals of Graphic Design.
By Regina J•
The course was a little dry, but it was quite informative and made me look at typeface differently. I love that I gained new vocabulary.

Very basic course. I enjoyed the lessons and the assignments. Gave some fundamental view and perspective about the field of typography.
By Daniil T•
Nice, interesting course. I went through it with pleasure.
But there is so little information, you can definitely give more :)
By Daria H•
Lots of interesting insights and good structure of the course. I wish the areas were covered a little more extensively though.
By Diana C V S•
I learned all the architecture of typography, how to recognize them from their parts, their style and their place in history.
By Syed M A•
There should have been more content and optional exercise for practices. Also some tips and tricks of using Adobe Indesign.

It is a great start to learn Typography, maybe the course could go a bit more further, and depen the knowledge it gives.
By Britt B C•
I found this course, a bit boring on presentation, but really interesting on topic. I also really enjoyed the projects
By Alexander H•
I had some trouble with the final project. I felt like it was too subjective and was harder to receive criticism.
By Broderick S•
Well-made videos. Assignments could be more rigorous. Not too much overlap with first course in specialization.
By Ricardo B•
A quick introduction to Typography that left me feeling there is so much more to learn and know.
By David K•
Good overall. Interesting videos and assignments. Could go in more depths for a four-week course though.

Very Helpful! But maybe when an experienced lecturer grades the assignments it will make a difference.
