Part of “Breakthroughs: Where Inspiration and Technology Meet,” a new webinar series designed by Adobe and AIGA
Until recently, typography for the web was limited to a handful of overused screen-display fonts, but new font services are giving web designers the freedom to choose their typefaces and control their appearance without sacrificing web standards. In this webinar, moderator Callie Neylan will lead a discussion with Tim Brown, type manager for Typekit, about this “golden age” for web typography and how emerging technologies are improving web design.

Great designers need more than good ideas to succeed. Knowing this AIGA and Adobe, the official AIGA sponsor for design solutions,
have designed a free members-only webinar series to explore the ways
that today’s studios are creating innovative, multiplatform experiences
and the tools they’re using to achieve them.
Through visual presentations and instructive case studies, visionary
designers will pair with Adobe experts to offer guidance to help lead
you to your next breakthrough. Moderated by educator and interaction
designer Callie Neylan, each session will address industry best
practices and fresh ideas for using new technology and platforms to
solve client challenges.
