Typography is the single most important design element, and, therefore, the most consequential course that an undergraduate student can take. Then why do so many student portfolios reflect poor typographic skill? In a singular effort to raise the bar on type education, designer and teacher Steven Heller reached out to type-devoted educators across the United States and Europe. Drawing from hundreds of hours of collective teaching experience, they distilled proposals and working concepts that make for challenging courses without inflating the students’ schedules. In The Education of a Typographer, editor Heller presents forty-one approaches to laying the foundation for typographic fluency.
