  1. In taking this class, it will introduce me to parts of my major, communication design that is required. I hope to learn the classifications of typography as well as using technology such as the Macintoch for designing online. I will also hope to gain more knowledge on types of designs and the anatomy.

  2. As a freshman, I want to learn how to get good at using InDesign so I can master Typography well. I had some experience using adobe programs for the first time during the fall semester, but I still need some practice on it.

  3. I wish to better understand typography and the impact it can have on a design. I’ve seen friends go through similar courses which has made me excited to work on the projects for this term.
