Graphic designers have a plethora of fonts at their disposal. However, time and time again I see people using fonts incorrectly. Fonts have purpose, they are part of a designer's tool kit. Wouldn't you want your font to be representative of your brand, product or business? Well, if you do, then perhaps you should check out this link, it's good for a laugh, but it's no joke.

Literally thousands of public domain media files that you can use in whatever you like.

One of the unique features of this course is that we're building the modules around existingOpen Educational Resources. Instead of creating our own lectures videos, we're curating the best from the open web, and we'd like to invite you to help us by contributing your discoveries to our growing list. We ask that anything you add be tagged with the appropriate module/week number (see below) as well as any relevant descriptive terms.

A poster I developed for my graphics design classes, summarizing what I felt were the essential elements of typography I wanted easily reference-able. If you feel there is anything I've missed that's essential, please let me know about it for consideration for inclusion in version 2.

I didn't create this. I got it at an SREB conference I went to, but I find it really useful. I'm attaching the template that I adapted, as well as the original editable file. I hope you all find it useful.

I can't remember but I think I got the University of Washington link from Judy Durkee. I get a lot of stuff from her. She is an AMAZING resource. Thanks Judy!. I also use the article from the Harvard Law Review on Shephard Fairey and the Hope Poster case. They all know the work and the discussion over whether it's a copyright violation or not can be really interesting. It's not as tough a read as you might think and I break up the kids into partners, assign them a section, do a partner read and then report back. IT's easier to scaffold that way. There is an NYT article online that then describes the outcome of the trial.

I am trying to figure out what order is the best way to learn everything Adobe. I have started with Photoshop, Illustrator, and In Design. Where should I go next, and what is the best way to go about it if I don't have the ability to drive to a school and take classroom classes. Thank you in advance, as I want to learn every one of the Adobe products I subscribe to in depth. I am curious the recommended learning order.DanielCalderone514@gmail.com

This is a great forum to see what discussions are current in the industry. As there is a paradigm shift and printing is becoming more industrialised and the demand for creatives to give print ready files to the printer it is important for teachers and trainers to know what the industry considers to be the current best practices, and pitfalls.
