If you’re studying to become a graphic designer, then it’s guaranteed you will have to learn typography. I came across this great resource which visually explains the anatomy of type.  Called Type Terms, it shows you exactly what type is made of and helps you remember it, especially if you have a visual memory. What a gem!
