About the Presentation: Responsive Typography & Color

Adjusting your website's layout for different screen sizes is only the beginning of what you can do with responsive design. In this session, we'll go beyond layout and look at how to use media queries to adjust both the typography and the colors on your website, so the site can look its best on any screen. Content is the most important feature of a website, so you need to make sure that text is easy to read no matter what device type or screen size it's being viewed on. Color choices are also important, and can affect accessibility as well as the overall tone of a website. Together, typography and color can have a big impact on the success of your website.
