The first time I taught typography, I researched how to go about it. I learned that there is no clear cut way. One article said to think about how you learned typography when first starting out. You didn’t learn in one way or from one source. Typography is learned over time and you’re continually training your eye. Always looking, always learning.

I love typography but I realized when planning my class that when it’s first introduced, typography can be dry and boring! Lots of terms and rules to learn. It’s not until you get past all of that, that you start to really see and appreciate the beauty in typography. To help get past all that, I researched typography games. I found a bunch online and they are fun!
