The Craft of Web Typography
We’re delighted to have been invited to deliver a workshop at Inspire Conference, joining a great line up that includes: Simon Collison, Tim Brown, Chris Shiflett and Jeffrey Zeldman, to name just a handful.
Our workshop – The Craft of Web Typography – offers an action-packed day of typographic inspiration, expertise, and hands-on learning. We’ll explore the benefits that rich web typography can offer in a rapidly changing landscape, where multi-device design, dazzling retina screens and responsive web design have become a reality.
Creating typographically rich and inspiring designs has never been easier. In this workshop we’ll introduce some fundamentals of typography, drawn from a long tradition, and explore the new visual language that rich web type offers.
Armed with this fundamental knowledge and an abundance of typographic tools – not to mention the Standardistas’ ‘Bag of Awesome™’ – we show the aspiring typographer the tricks of the trade through a series of hands-on typographic exercises.
By the end of an intensive, but enjoyable day, participants will have acquired a wealth of typographic knowledge on which to build, ensuring that they leave inspired and ready to apply their new-found skills to create beautifully crafted web type experiences.
We very much hope to see you in Leiden; if you’re in attendance, do come and say, “Hello!” Better still, join us on our workshop for what, we promise, will be an action-packed day.
