Type Design Tutoring FAQ

Courier. Helvetica. Times New Roman. It's easy to forget that all these familiar typefaces were designed by someone! The art and science of type design (also referred to as typeface design) is exacting, but filled with the opportunity for creativity. If you're looking for type design tutoring to help you improve your skills, Varsity Tutors can help! We'd love to connect you with a tutor who can help you hone your type designing skills in a supportive environment.

One major benefit to working with a private tutor is getting customized lessons. A type design tutor can get to know you and your goals, they're able to create tailored study sessions that can maximize your time and energy. You'll be able to focus on specific design topics, such as:

  • The history of typesetting
  • Understanding the basics of typeface design
  • Identifying type families, e.g. serif, sans serif, script, and display
  • How to use common digital type design programs, such as FontForge, FontLab, and Glyphs
  • How types are built: studies in cap height, meanline, baseline, etc.
  • Designing using pencil and paper
  • Commercial applications of type design

Along with calligraphy, type design is an increasingly popular skill to learn as we experience a bit of a handmade-goods renaissance. Unfortunately, there aren't many schools currently offering full curriculum in type design. Those teaching themselves the intricacies of type design can certainly benefit from private tutoring! Working one-on-one with a design mentor can accelerate your progress and give you an outlet for your most technical questions: "How can adjusting a character's aperture affect its usability?" A professional type design tutor can provide an answer! If you're lucky enough to be attending a university design program and are interested in college type design tutoring, we can put you in a touch with a tutor who can help with your advanced coursework.
