Intro to Typography

  • Oct 30, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

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

If something changes after registration and you cannot attend the course, your seat is yours to sell or give to someone else - just please let us know who!
