I’ve been fairly quiet for most of this year, due to working hard, personal problems and then a very long holiday (that was much needed) but I’m getting back into the swing of things now and back from my holidays. Many of the client sites I’ve been working on over the last year will be live soon so stayed tuned, but one thing I can announce is that I’m putting together a class on skillshare.com.
This class is for beginner level front-end web designers who are already learning, or about to learn HTML(5) and CSS(3) and want to hone and improve their typographical skills within the context of todays modern responsive and forward thinking design techniques.
The class is a beginners introduction to webfonts and web typography. Typography on the web has come on leaps and bounds in recent years and is ever improving and evolving. Designers have more and more control not only of how they approach typography but also the fonts they use and the treatments they style them with, but with great control comes great responsibility. Typography on the web isn’t just about choosing the latest pretty font, readability, usability and cross-device scalability must be balanced with aesthetics.
The class starts on
October 7th November 4th, look forward to seeing some of you there.
Check out a quick page I put together to promote the class.
