The Eleven Commandments of Typography

A crash course in typography, based on the ideas presented in The Ten Commandments of Typography/Type Heresy: Breaking the Ten Commandments of Typography by Paul Felton. Brooke Irish led participants went through a series of fast lessons and exercises to learn about typographic hierarchy, typefaces, kerning, alignment, and copy flow using InDesign as their typesetting tool.

Brooke Irish is a Los Angeles-based graphic designer. By day, she works to create identity systems for companies and non-profits as a freelancer. By night, she designs books, posters and other lovely things as 1/2 of Father Madre.
