Typography Critique Week 3 – Two Point Sizes, One Weight

(3 of 7) Welcome to the Typography Week 3 Critique – If you are interested in the typography course, check it out here – https://bit.ly/Type01_yt

Have you ever been stuck while designing something and have wanted professional feedback? We understand that the design process can be tough without guidance through the process. If you want to learn why basic typography skills matter, this critique is for you.

For this episode, we have asked our Typography 01 students to submit their assignments for an opportunity to receive a critique. Chris Do and Milka Broukhim conduct the critique live so we can all learn together.

In this part 3 of 7 critique episodes, we will review the concept of “Breaking down and learning how to see” using One Weight, and Two Point Sizes. We’ll talk about how to group sections based on importance and hierarchy.
