My Love for You Podcast - Steve 'ESPO' Powers

I recently sat down with graffiti writer and artist Steve ESPO Powers in a noisy bar in the heart of the Mission in San Francisco as he prepared for an upcoming show. We cover a wide range of topics from his youth in Philadelphia to his feelings around graffiti as a crime to having community as an artist. http://myloveforyou.typepad.com/my_love_for_you/2011/07/new-podcast-series-steve-espo-powers.html

Richard Rutter – Typography in Responsive Web Design

Typography wears many hats in the user experience world. It’s part of the overall look of the visual design. It can convey tone and meaning of the content. Well set type can improve the user experience through readability and be an important piece of the accessibility puzzle for users with low vision. As with most things involving the web these days, typography isn’t immune to the disruption caused by mobile and multi-device design.

Where Web Typography Goes To Next

The future of web typography is as uncertain as any other aspect of the medium, but one thing is for sure: it's got momentum. At no other time has typography been taken so seriously by so many involved in the web, and that means there's an awful lot of change and innovation to keep up with if you want to stay on the cutting edge of online type. In as much depth as 60 minutes will allow, this presentation will cover recent proposals and additions to CSS 3, from ligatures to hyphenation, synthesis to capitalisation, and much in between. It will cover the reasoning behind the new aspects of CSS 3, and reintroduce older properties which only now are becoming implemented and useful (and thus browser support will not be ignored either). No session on web typography would be complete without discussion of webfonts. There is still much learn in this field, both in what CSS can provide, and the technical implementation within browsers. But web typography is not just about CSS, or even good type setting. The bit that touches us most closely is the medium through which most of us read: text rendering and screens, and this presentation will discuss and demonstrate the cutting edge of both. Web typography is a hugely exciting part of web design, and the field that is moving most quickly. This presentation will give you everything you need to know to keep right on the spur of the serif, the apex of the ascender, and the edge of the curve.

Font designs and the stories behind them. - RN By Design - 23 February 2011

With the options offered by computers, never before have so many people had access to so many choices of typeface when writing a document. Yet some fonts remain more popular than others. Helvetica and Comic Sans took the world by storm yet we are still influenced by type choices made more than 500 years ago. We all have an opinion about fonts; we love or hate one or the other and most of us have a favourite we habitually use. But behind every typeface is the human story of its designer. http://www.abc.net.au/rn/bydesign/stories/2011/3144035.htm

Simon Pascal Klein — Setting standards-​​friendly web type

Web typography has in the past two years seen a resurgence in interestand many would agree only rightly so, with most of the content on the web still textual. However the range of technical options available for setting type on the web is quite broad—not to mention the range of stylistic choices available—and often confusing. This session aims to demystify the current techniques available to set type on the web by compar­ing and contrasting the various options at hand while offering a set of good defaults and safe advice for not only making it accessible but also pleasurable to read.

The Power and Beauty of Typography

Web typography has come a long way, but how do you find inspiration to push your designs forward online? Letters can say far more than the words they spell. In her session, Samantha will look at the lettering surrounding us everyday, tapping into the way it makes us feel. If you don’t already get emotional about which font to use, you will, looking at letters in a whole new way and learning how to translate those feelings into your web designs. http://2010.dconstruct.org/speakers/samantha-warren Samantha Warren loves big concepts as much as she loves badass typography and thrives on telling interesting stories through usable interfaces. She has written articles for .net Magazine, regularly speaks at industry events and is on the Board of the Art Directors Club of Washington DC. When she is not doing any of the above you can find her enthusiastically teaching typography and web design at the Center for Digital Imaging Arts at Boston University.
