Part of “Breakthroughs: Where Inspiration and Technology Meet,” a new webinar series designed by Adobe and AIGA
Designers love type. And most are meticulous about setting type for their print projects to ensure the best reading experience possible. Now with more and more people reading magazines, books and news on digital devices, how can designers apply tried and true traditional type rules to the mobile space?
In this webinar, we looked at how to optimize typography for smaller screen real estate, exploring how good typographic principles such as line-height, line-length, contrast, scannability, white space, and hierarchy can improve the mobile reading experience.
This webinar was recorded on October 24, 2012. Watch the recorded session
