"Thanks to Ilene & CreativeLive, I now have a comprehensive understanding of typography and a critical eye for all things typographic which I will apply to all of the design elements of my business. I'll also never look at a menu or book cover the same way!
Ilene was fantastic! She was very thorough and detailed in her lessons, while bringing her personality and humor to the subject of typography - which might be a dull topic if taught by someone else."
