Poynter NewsU offers a course on typography for news design - the basic principles of typography. The session includes interactive activities to help participants learn how to correct common mistakes and apply standard rules of design.
The self-directed course for designers, copy editors and anyone who wants to learn how type can be just as effective as images when designing pages, is offered free through the support of the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. Instructor is Sara Quinn, design and journalism consultant who holds the R.M. Seaton Chair for Professional Journalism at Kansas State University and immediate past president of the Society for News Design.
