For those who want to learn to design type:
You can learn from tons of online resources these days, lucky bastards (like our type-basics
on typeworkshop.com). You can read dozens of good books on type, there are many good books available.
But the most precious treat is time for practicing. Quit the internet, shut down your computer, switch off your phone, put your books back to the shelf. Silence and concentration. Get paper and some tools (pencils, pens, whatever), and start sketching, drawing, writing. It’s the best way to learn and discover your own direction. Do it.
