Flawless Typography: Understanding and breaking the rules

SUMMER SALE!     $100 $25

Typography is a powerful tool—it can upgrade your work or make it unclear. If you want to use it, you'll need to understand its rules... but if you want to master it, you'll also need to learn how and when to break those rules.


There are no pre-requisites or requirements for this course.

The goal of this course is to show you how to sharpen your typography skills in order to wow your clients and create unforgettable digital experiences


Defining typography is one of Mario’s and Bornfight's signature design practices, so this course will give you both the theoretical and the practical know-how needed to sharpen your skills and train your eye. You’ll first go through the history, the classification and the technical aspects of typography… and then upgrade it by learning how to communicate the right visual messages by choosing, using and combining typefaces in different contexts and scenarios.

Good typography is at the heart of any well designed project and this is definitely true when it comes to Mario’s work. I’ve always admired the way he balances stylistic choices with functionality to create truly harmonious design work. Whether you want to learn the basics or just sharpen up your existing skills; learning from Mario will definitely help you level up.
