Every day millions of people look at text on the web, on websites, email, Twitter, blogs etc. As designers, you should be striving to make those reading experiences as good as possible, but with technology moving so quickly and design trends changing all the time it can be hard to keep up. This workshop will give you technical skills to make your typography highly effective.
What does the course cover?
This one-day workshop with Richard Rutter, one of the most-respected names in web typography, will teach you to create web designs with captivating, expressive and readable typography.

Richard will teach how to design and develop for screens of all shapes and sizes, resulting in the best experiences for readers.
This is a hands-on workshop, where you will apply techniques learned to a sample site whose code you can take home. In addition, you will receive a complimentary copy of Richard’s acclaimed book, Web Typography.
