Web Typography at ARTIFACT East

Mon, 11/04/2013 to Wed, 11/06/2013

ARTIFACT East, in Providence, RI, aims to help prepare designers for the new multi-device reality of our world. Jason has been asked to speak about Web Typography and how to use embedded web fonts effectively. From the conference site:

You can’t design ‘content first’ without good typography, but there’s more to it than just dropping in a line of Javascript or linking to some CSS. We’ll cover things like:

  • Font services vs. self-hosting (smackdown-style)
  • Where they work (and where they don’t)
  • Performance (and how to get more of it)
  • Icon fonts (even MORE resolution independence)
  • Mobile use (benefits and bear traps)
  • Fallbacks, FOUT & Freakouts (don’t present to clients without this)
  • Super Fancy (ff)eatures (ligatures & other Open Type goodness)

Don’t get me wrong - I _love_ web fonts and good typography - but it is still a bit ‘Wild West’ out there, so it pays to be prepared.

Tickets are going fast and the lineup of speakers is fantastic. Hope you can grab a ticket and join us there!

This is really good opportunity to learn more about CSS stylesheets. According to the myassignmenthelp service, there are many updates are happened in this web typography. So, one should have the updated knowledge on web typography while handling a project.
