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.
Tim Brown is a designer, writer, speaker, and toolmaker, with a focus on typography. Formerly a web designer at Vassar College, he is now Type Manager for Adobe Typekit, a curator for A List Apart, and the author of Nice Web Type at @nicewebtype on Twitter).
After making Modular Scale and Web Font Specimen, Tim wrote about each in two all-time staff favorite A List Apart articles. His ideas about Molten Leading inspired jQuery plugins for fluid line-height. He has appeared on The Big Web Show, spoken at Build, and participated in AIGA Breakthroughs.
