‘I was happily surprised by the dynamic & positive – open welcoming approach to typography (= mindset of the teacher)– a world that has a label to be conservative & high-brow. The concept of an online course, let alone the topic was rather new to me and it was a great experience.’
Ignaas Vanden Poel, Berlin
‘Great moments, nice people and exceptional teacher… Definitely a more than type experience for me.
