Intro to Typography

Are you interested in becoming a better designer? The first step is expanding your knowledge of one of the most fundamental elements of web design: typography.

A strong grasp of typography is an essential skill for a web designer because 95% of the information on the web is written language.

While mastering typography can take a lifetime, this class will provide techniques and guidelines to help you create beautiful, readable typography.

In this workshop, you'll get an overview of web typography with a focus on:

• Understanding typography fundamentals for improved readability

• Evaluating and choosing typefaces that convey the tone of our content appropriately

• Typographic planning: including type scales and type systems

• Working with web fonts, taking consideration how to select web fonts for various devices (desktop, mobile, tablet) and browsers

    Hi Cecy,
    Thanks for checking with me. No one reached me for Saturday class. I am ok to give up that spot to someone. (Saturday there is a family event I am attending. )
    Sunday, I will be there for Design in browser.

    I wish I could go, but I'll be out of town. I wanted to leave a comment expressing my interest, though, because I hope you'll repeat this class!
