Join Ina Saltz for an in-depth discussion in this video Getting the most out of this course, part of Foundations of Typography: Color, Contrast, and Scale.
I've included a few resources for this course. These documents have been provided in the Exercise Files Tab on the course details page for all lynda.com subscribers. One of these documents, is a list of type blogs and newsletters, which feature recent font releases. I recommend you check these out, to help you stay plugged in to the latest developments and news in the world of typography. Another document is a list of typography books you should take a look at to continue your learning.
There's also a list of schools, organizations and conferences that are all about typography. And I'm including links to type management software and type design software. I've also included a quick creative challenge so you can practice the principals in this course. I hope you'll try it. These documents aren't necessary to follow along with this course, but they will give you some helpful resources to keep learning and take your type usage to the next level.
