Second Edition Of Ampersand Web Typography Conference
My one-presentation-a-month streak is almost over. The last one in this series of six is my speaking commitment at Beyond Tellerrand, SXSW Interactive and TYPO SF, this is yet another entirely new talk, just like From Metal Scripts to Digital Writing at TYPO Berlin last month. While last year I merely reported the web type conference, this time I will be on stage, delving into the intricacies of fine typography on the web.
In the organisers' own words
Ampersand will be a fabulous day of nitty gritty details from experts in font design & development, typesetting & font usage, browser implementations and web design.
I will be sharing the stage with a truly Erik Spiekermann, one of the quickest (in all senses of the word) speakers in the design business. After the coffee break I will try to enlighten the audience with some typography basics with Detail in Web Typography. Then type designers Veronika Burian & José Scaglione (TypeTogether) are going to offer recipes for combining typefaces with Typographic Matchmaking.
During lunch break the audience is treated to a screening of Jason Smith explaining the ins and outs of Designing Fonts For Screens, and Laurence Penney initiating the audience in the occult art of CSS font stack hackery. Luc(as) de Groot will crank up the occultism even more with On Hinting.
The two closing speakers are household names in web design. Jake Archibald (one of the most entertaining speakers I've seen) will explore the code aspect of web type with In your @font-face. To conclude Elliot Jay Stocks will expand on his excellent TYPO Berlin presentation with Enhancing the Future, showing what bright new possibilities webfonts offer.
And it doesn't end there – attendees are invited to the After-Party at inaugural conference last year.
