Finding Your Perfect Web Type Match

The world of web type has opened up huge possibilities in typography for web designers but sadly not all fonts on the web were made for the web. We have browser rendering, performance and more to consider on top of our typographic design decisions. This makes choosing type for use on the web just a bit tricky. In this talk Val will cover techniques and tools for balancing aesthetics and performance when selecting web type. We’ll cover everything you need to end up with a web font that’s “just your type”.
