  1. Jason Santa Maria - On Web Typography

    Achieving a thorough grasp of typography can take a lifetime, but moving beyond the basics is within your reach right now. In this talk, we’ll learn how to look at typefaces with a discerning eye, different approaches to typographic planning, how typography impacts the act of reading, and how to choose and combine appropriate typefaces from an aesthetic and technical point of view. Through an understanding of our design tools and how they relate to the web as a medium, we can empower ourselves to use type in meaningful and powerful ways.

    Ampersand is an affordable one-day event for knowledgable web designers & type enthusiasts, held in Brighton on 17 June 2011.

  3. Get Stoked on Web Typography by Samantha Warren

    Typography can make or break a design, but there are big differences between what makes jaw-dropping type offline from what makes great type online?
