  2. ‘That pig was a good influence’ with Jeremy Keith and Jeffrey Zeldman on Unfinished Business

    Last week was Jeffrey Zeldman’s website’s 20th birthday, so this week he joins me and Jeremy Keith on Unfinished Business 110 to talk about the anniversary. We start by discussing Jeremy’s 100 words for 100 days writing project and how it’s inspired me to change the way that I think about writing on our blog and posting to our portfolio. We talk about the importance of writing for yourself as well as for others and why writing on your own website is important. With it being the twentieth anniversary of Jeffrey’s own site, we also talk about whether it’s important to archive older designs for posterity.

  3. Bruce Lawson Has Responsive Web Design

    At NDC, Carl and Richard talk to Bruce Lawson about responsive web design. Responsive web design from Bruce’s point of view is web pages that are able to adjust to the browser and device that they are being viewed on. From the huge displays on desktop PCs to the tiny screens of smartphones, you can make your web pages work effectively! Bruce talks about some of the tools and libraries available to simplify responsive web design, so check out the links from the show!

  5. Mark Boulton: Outing the Mind: Designing for the Chaos

    Laying out content has changed little over the centuries. It’s improved through the application of technology, but the design decisions and motivations remain the same. Until now. Designing with type for the web is changing, and it’s happening right now. Hundreds of years of design practice is being increasingly challenged, and for those of us working in this medium, it’s hurting. Mark will look at the scale of this problem and how we can change the way we work to embrace it.

  6. John Daggett: The Future of CSS Typography

    This talk will focus on efforts to improve typographic support in CSS. Beyond just defining the @font-face rule, new properties in the CSS3 Fonts module provide explicit control over kerning, ligatures, small-caps and a variety of features commonly available in OpenType fonts.

    These features will allow designers to solve a number of basic typographic problems in a much more elegant way than previously was possible. How these new properties evolved and some of the design problems involved will be discussed in detail. The problem of consistent rendering across browsers and the effect of that on both font and web design will also be discussed.

  7. Jonathan Hoefler: Putting the ‘Fonts’ into Webfonts

    More than twenty years ago, Jonathan Hoefler made it his mission to promote desktop publishing (and shush its critics) by providing designers with a new generation of fonts: attractive and useful designs which set a new standard in quality and dependability, and are today known as the H&FJ library. Today, as webfonts are buoyed by a wave of early-adopter enthusiasm, they’re marred by a similar unevenness in quality, and it’s not just a matter of browsers and rasterizers, or the eternal shortage of good fonts and preponderance of bad ones. There are compelling questions about what it means to be fitted to the technology, how foundries can offer designers an expressive medium (and readers a rich one), and what it means for typography to be visually, mechanically, and culturally appropriate to the web.

    Join Jonathan Hoefler on an exploration of this side of webfonts, and a discussion of where the needs of designers meet the needs of readers. You’ll get a glimpse of what H

  8. Jon Tan: Screen First

    Web fonts are causing designers to approach typography in a whole new way. Services like Fontdeck are fundamentally changing the way designers choose type. Jon will explore this brave new world of web typography, and explain how the constraints of web type are actually an opportunity to refine how we design, from the body up.
