Exploring InDesign

New textbook by Terry Rydberg, Exploring InDesign, 6/e (Cengage), featuring Ian.

Available from Amazon.



I love drawing letters. It started in Grade 4 when I used to copy the 16-point type from my reading books size-as just for the thrill of it. As I got older, I found the expressive power within letters intoxicating and wanted to create them myself, interpreting their moods and their geometry.

Type is the foundation of good graphic design. Sensitive choices regarding type styles and weights and sizes impact visual message and meaning. Art directors who want to go beyond available type solutions come to me. I am a lettering designer.
