Is fine typography on the web at long last a reality? This summer, distinguished type designers Hoefler & Frere-Jones launched Cloud.typography, which brings a new generation of tools to designers, and sets a new standard for readability on the screen.
Join Jonathan Hoefler, recipient of the 2013 AIGA Medal, on a tour of H&FJ’s four-year project to bring fine typography to the web. You’ll see how H&FJ adapted its library of famous typefaces for the web, learn some new ways of looking at type that are essential to the cross-disciplinary designer, and see how the web can be a truly great medium for elegant, articulate, and expressive typography.
