CLASS UPDATE To celebrate the start of a brand new year I am setting a challenge... all you have to do is illustrate one word - in could be any word, maybe your word for 2015 or just a favourite word. I'd like to see a typographical element in your design but you can be creative with that. I want to keep this brief really open and simple. Use whatever mediums you like - could be purely digital, could be a painting or something more physical. If you could upload your designs in the projects section of the class, I will be looking through all of them and choosing a winner on the 1st March. The winner will receive one years free membership to Skillshare. Feel free to also share your work in progress in our facebook group. I will try to give feedback here along with anyone else who would like to. Ok, now back to the course... This self paced course is for anyone with an interest in typography, from artists, graphic designers and illustrators to people who have to regularly make presentations.
