Our instructors include award-winning designers who are leaders in their fields. We work with the best to ensure you receive the best teaching and consulting possible. Many designers or aspiring designers out there, would have to leave home (and likely need to be fluent in English) to get access to good type design education; or attend conferences to take font engineering workshops. Our instructors have opted in to online teaching, so that they can help us take down these geographical and linguistic barriers — and we love them for it!
