This course is aimed at designers who are already familiar with designing websites, and the concept of responsive web design. Or for web developers looking to get a better handle on their typography, in the responsive sites that they're building. I assume a basic knowledge of CSS and HTML, as well as some knowledge of responsive design concepts, like using media queries. If you're not familiar with CSS, I'd suggest checking out this course, CSS Core Concepts, by James Williamson. If you're not familiar with HTML, HTML Essential Training with Bill Weinman, will be a helpful course to try.
And if at any point you'd like to brush up on what media queries are, and how to use them, check out this course, Responsive Design Fundamentals, with James Williamson.
