Webinar: Typography for the Web
Part of “Breakthroughs: Where Inspiration and Technology Meet,” a new webinar series designed by Adobe and AIGA
Typography for the Web
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.

Tim has written for A List Apart, and he helps web designers with tools such as Modular Scale and Web Font Specimen. Follow his Twitter feed at @nicewebtype.
