Web Typography: Traditional Methods and Contemporary Technology
Chancellor’s Colloquium Series, 2012–13.
I’ll present snippets of recent projects that help educate non-typographers (web designers, computer scientists, small business owners, and casual bloggers) how to create legible, pleasant reading experiences.
I’ll focus on the intersection of traditional typographic methods and contemporary technology, and how knowledge and skills from one process can be adapted to serve another.
This event is by invitation only. I have a limited number of invitations, so if you are a Design Educator or Professional in the Providence / Boston / South Eastern Mass area and would like to attend, please contact me. Thursday, February 21, 2013 at UMass Dartmouth. Reception starts at 5:30, followed by dinner and presentation.
