Typesetting the Web

My talk from WordCamp Edmonton, 2012

Typography is the vessel that carries an ideas to your audience. In addition to being beautiful, proper typography affords your message credibility, clarity, and emotional resonance. This talk explains why typography is crucial to the success of a website and demonstrates best practices for styling text on the web. You’ll learn basic typeface anatomy & terminology, typesetting techniques (such as font sizing, line length & line height), and how to choose appropriate fonts for the web.

Slides are available on Speaker Deck.
