What students think...

JINNY SAYS...
I have a BA in Multimedia Design so I shouldn’t need this course. Right? Wrong!

I know that typography can make or break a design. My course skimmed over the complexity of working with type. I’ve got a shelf full of books about the topic too, but there are things I’ve never quite ‘got’.

Kimi’s ‘Designing with Typography Course’ is well considered, easily digestible & well laid out.

I love that the videos are supported by text transcripts & images because often I want to consume information at my own pace & not via video.

RACHEL SAYS...
I've read my share of design material on the internet and elsewhere, but I could tell from lesson 1 that Kimi's course is a cut above.

Her visuals clearly show you what NOT to do, as well as how to make your design elements look as clean and professional as possible.

And she's not just good at graphic design - she can actually explains the hows and whys of the material with clarity and wit.
