This is a new blog series I’m starting. I’m going to post online introduction to typography guides, type games, recommended sites, books, blogs and articles. If you want to learn more about design but still almost know nothing about typography, then these three videos are a great introduction. The later two are actually the same ones I watched in 2010 (when I first learnt about typography, in high school) and I couldn’t find a better collection.
1. The history of typography
2. Introduction to typography one
3. Introduction to typography two
4. An introduction to typeface anatomy
5. Typography that works
If you want to learn more or if you’re looking for more advanced guides, then watch out for the online guides to typography I’m going to post soon.
