Modular Typography for the Web

Content Web Saturday sessions

This talk is for:

  • Designers looking to take a systemic approach to typography in their web project.
  • Developers and designers who want to mutually set a format of typography specification delivery that works.

Speaker, Hamsa Ganesh, shares how to make this replicable in every project. The advantages approaching web typography with a type scale are:

  • It saves a lot of time decision-making for typography and spacing during the design stage.
  • It helps establish a vertical rhythm between screen components.
  • It makes your designs more predictable to developers and future designers.

This talk will cover:

  • What is a modular type scale + why should you use one?
  • Introduction to the tool :
  • Step-by-step: How to define a responsive modular type scale
  • Handing-off type specifications to developers
