  2. The Next Steps for Web Typography - Marko Dugonjić

    We’ve come a long way with web typography since the dawn of web design, however, it sometimes feels as if the constraints of old still dampens our creativity. Marko will show us ways we can push typographic design on the web further, beyond the status quo of today.

  5. Chinese Design for Westerners - Lu Yu

    Designing for the Chinese market can be quite tricky for Western designers, especially if they are tasked with adapting a website that was designed for Latin alphabets to one using Chinese characters. Lu will talk through the crucial differences between Chinese and Western web design, from layout and colour, cultural aspects, through to a lack of italics and gigantic character sets.

  6. Designing Typefaces for Screens - Bruno Maag

    In recent years, Dalton Maag have increasingly been designing typefaces for use primarily on screens, including the Amazon Bookerly fonts. Bruno will talk about the design, development and testing of these fonts, and how the process and requirements differ from primarily print fonts.

  7. The Future of Responsive Typography - Nick Sherman

    As web typographers stick with low-level hacks and antiquated standards, some of the most important elements of typography still aren’t addressed on the web of today. Nick will explore the unrealised potential for context-specific type, and how it might influence responsive design in the future.

  9. To Hell for Type - Marcin Wichary

    Medium aims to bring world-class typography to readers and writers. However, what appears to be clean on the surface often meant creative, but awkward solutions underneath. Marcin will share some battle scars, talk heinous hacks he’ll go to hell for, and divulge stories including the curse of the medium Medium font, the 150-year typographical war with Chrome, and the origin story of Fontificator, the “Bloomberg terminal for fonts.”

  10. Down with Web Typography - Indra Kupferschmid

    Down with ‘web typography’, long live ‘typography on the web’. Indra will open Ampersand by persuading us to retire the notion of web typography as a special case with its own rules, and instead have us consider the typographic pitfalls specific to type on screens.

    Recorded at Ampersand 2015, Brighton, UK.
