UIE Virtual Seminar Presentation (How does this work?)
Founder & Production Director, ClearleftLength: 90 minutes
You're dealing with different screen sizes and resolutions. You may already be trying to integrate responsive web design in your process as a way to account for this mobile reality. You may well be daunted by the sheer number of devices out there.
Typography can come to the rescue…
Find out how from Richard Rutter. He'll describe how to make web typography work across any number of different devices, and how it can and should be the basis of any responsive web design.
He'll tell you why good typography matters (you may be surprised) and how to perfect the typography in your own designs using OpenType and cutting-edge CSS features you can safely use right now.
Richard will take you through the how and why of choosing web fonts and pairing typefaces, and he’ll describe a range of options for optimizing the display of web fonts across different devices.
You'll see real-world examples of when to use—and not use—certain
You'll become an authority on how typography affects UX.
You'll hear several different ways to load fonts faster.
You'll stop only using screen sizes to define your designs.
Whether you're a front-end developer, graphic designer, or UX specialist, you'll love to hear Richard translate cutting-edge research and tools into practical techniques you can start using today.
Throughout the seminar, you’ll be building up a fully-loaded example web page you can take away to learn from and experiment with afterwards.
Even if you've just started dabbling in web typography, you probably already know Richard Rutter (@clagnut). After all, he runs webtypography.net, organizes Ampersand, speaks at conferences from An Event Apart to UX London, and will soon publish a book on typography (via Five Simple Steps).
In collaboration with OmniTI, he also created the Fontdeck web service for Clearleft—the Brighton, UK-based digital agency he co-founded. As their production director, Richard digs into all facets of UX design, like redesigning a video-on-demand service for a major broadcaster.
We've been delighted to have Richard speak at past UIE events, and so we know first-hand that you’ll be delighted to hear him speak at this one, too.
These seminars are great, thanks! We sometimes have staff members who are unable to attend the live seminar, and with access to the recorded content, anyone on the team can watch in the future.
