FOWD NYThe Future of Web Design conference returns to New York City next week, and we’re excited to once again be a part of this informative and inspiring event. The schedule is packed with sessions covering HTML5, CSS, creativity and other topics from some of the most respected voices in Web design, including our own Dan Rhatigan who will be participating in three sessions. We’re also pleased to be joined by Chris Armstrong, part of the team behind the much anticipated Typecast application. Chris will help us explore how browser-based design can lead to better sites and better typography.

At last there is now incredible potential to consider a full range of typeface choices for web design, e-books, and other screen devices. However, these choices bring with them a new array of issues to be considered by developers and designers alike. We will look at a number of factors that should influence not only which fonts will work best for you, but also how you can then use those fonts effectively.

Better Sites with Better Type: Designed in the Browser, by Chris Armstrong of Design by Front and Dan Rhatigan
Tuesday, November 8 at 1:20 p.m.
The Web is a living medium, and at its heart is compelling content. Putting content first and designing with HTML and CSS can help you produce better designs that are easier to maintain. Learn how to create a strong typographic foundation using Web fonts and how the small adjustments that make typography blossom are better made within the browser.

If attending, be sure to say hi to the team at the Fonts.com booth for a look at what’s new with our Fonts.com Web Fonts service or a sneak peak at how you can design with Web fonts using Typecast.
