New Course: Introduction to Web Typography

by

Web typography is accessible to everyone. If you've ever built or designed a web page, you've almost definitely turned your hand to web typography of some sort. As a discipline, typography has been practiced for hundreds of years, and as a result there are many lessons and conventions we can learn from.

Saying that, web typography is a bit like skiing. It's unwise to just grab a couple of wooden planks and throw yourself down a black piste; you'll develop bad habits and perhaps even break a bone. Before diving into your next web project, make sure you've at least considered the fundamentals.

I can't help you with skiing, but I can help you with web typography. If you've never looked properly into the subject, or even if you need a refresher, Introduction to Web Typography is for you!

Overview

As with all Tuts+ Premium courses, we'll start at the beginning, working through the basics and some terminology, before moving on to the practicalities. During the process we'll build ourselves a demo web page which will highlight the theory we cover. Even if you're not yet confident with HTML and CSS, each video comes with source files stepping off from where the previous video ended.

Take a look at the episodes listed below and be sure to check out the preview videos even if you don't yet have a Premium subscription.
