Ethan Marcotte: Responsive Web Design Interview — The Way of Responsive Web Design | Design Interview
Web typography has in the past two years seen a resurgence in interestand many would agree only rightly so, with most of the content on the web still textual. However the range of technical options available for setting type on the web is quite broad—not to mention the range of stylistic choices available—and often confusing. This session aims to demystify the current techniques available to set type on the web by comparing and contrasting the various options at hand while offering a set of good defaults and safe advice for not only making it accessible but also pleasurable to read.
Andy Clarke’s Hardboiled Web Design is an uncom promising look at how to make the most from modern design tools and browsers, up-to-date tech niques and processes. In this practical, design focussed talk, Andy will discuss the ‘how’ as well as the ‘why’ and will chal lenge your preconceptions to help you make bet ter work for the web.
Andy will demon strate the most modern, forward-moving and some times experimental CSS techniques while emphasising why a forward looking approach to CSS will pay real dividends.
