I didn't learn much about using font from my poster design class, and I really need to learn some graphic design so my resume and marketing tools look presentable. The professor seems really nice and no one in the class seemed unfriendly, so I think it'll be a good semester.
After the class got out, I talked with the professor about the assignment, which is to bring in some type we really like or dislike, and I mentioned Papyrus. She said that since I already know it's a bad choice I'll do fine in this class.
I'm a little scared, since I'm an illustrator and everyone else already is Graphic Design; I had to bypass the pre-reqs to take this. Luckily the girl next to me gave an answer when I whispered "What's letting?" and explained the difference between that and kerning. The girl next to her seems the fun sort of hyper. I look forward to getting to know the people in my class. The professor also said she likes mentoring, so I don't think I'll be behind on all the GD lingo for long.
