Web Typography has seen a strong resurgence in the past few years, and rightly so, with most of content online still very text-based.

We'll look at various methods of setting type on the web, both from technical and aesthetic perspectives, and explore a few tips to get the best effects and see what options there are for improving typography within Drupal.

The talk is suited to anyone who publishes on the web, with relevance to designers and develĀ­opers.

I loved this presentation! It was so enthusiastic, well paced and covered so much information. It has made me want to learn more about typography on the web and in general. Absolutely one of the best sessions of the conference!


I had almost given up on seeing any decent typography on the web until this presentation blew me away. Thank goodness people are finally paying attention this. I haven't met anyone before involved in online publishing that knew much about this topic. and to listen to this presenter who was obviously very knowledgeable and had great examples to back up why this is such an important/interesting topic.

This presenter gave me new hope for publishing online and I would have come to the conf just to learn from him alone. Without a doubt this was my favourite session, unless it's not obvious.
