I delivered this presentation at WordCamp Toronto, November 15, 2014.
This presentation covers typography basics and best practices, type trends in web design, personalities of type, an introduction to Google Fonts and different ways to enable fonts on your WordPress website.
The ideal audience is anyone looking to better understand Typography and how it relates to web design. They don’t need to have a coding or design background, but that would be an asset.
Understand the different types of fonts and when to use them
Recognize the various personalities and tones fonts have and how they can affect your message
Know what the current trends are in Typography and web design
Use theme options and/or plugins to modify fonts
Leverage Google Fonts and integrate them directly into your theme
