Hello everyone! Welcome to my course Typography 101: The Secret to Beautiful Movie Posters. This course is built based on my love for the beauty of movie posters and my experience with graphic design in general.
Have you ever been absolutely mesmerized by a beautiful movie poster? Well, that’s the whole point of a movie poster: capture your precious attention and pull you to the theater to watch the movie. But still, you wonder, what makes that movie poster so beautiful, though? Maybe it’s the beautiful color palette or the perfect font combination? You’re not sure.
If you’re eager to learn ‘the trick’ and unlock ‘the secret’, this course is for you. Ultimately, the secret to a beautiful movie poster is typography, the art of using text. In this course, you will learn everything from basic to advanced knowledge. We will learn new terminology, the categories of typefaces, on what occasions should you use a certain typeface, etc. What truly makes this course special is that we will spend a lot of time looking at examples to make sure that you understand the material really thoroughly. When we look at examples together, you don’t just listen to my analysis, you learn the skill, the technique to make your own observations and learn from others’ work.
This class has no requirements for expensive software or previous graphic design knowledge. Therefore, anyone and everyone is welcomed to join this course.
Who this course is for:
- Beginners to Graphic Design
- People who want to use text more effectively in resumes, business cards, presentations, etc.
- Anyone who is curious and eager to learn new knowledge
Freelance Graphic Designer
Hello! My name is Minh Ngoc Nguyen. I’m a freelance graphic designer here in Houston, TX. I’ve developed my love for art at a very young age but it’s not until high school that I first knew about designing on computers. After that, I started my self-study graphic design journey through YouTube and the Internet. Throughout my career, I’ve had many great opportunities to work on different projects designing logos, flyers, posters, business cards, etc. I’m here today because I want to share my experience and knowledge with people like me who are curious and eager to learn new things. Can’t wait to see my students’ amazing artwork here on Udemy.
