Typography is at the core of design, underpinning everything — whether you’re designing books, magazines, presentations, marketing collateral, Publish Online documents, or fixed-layout EPUBs. Without a strong typographical foundation, your design is going to be wimpy and weak. Typeface combinations should be carefully considered, hyphenation and justification optimized, widows and orphans banished, baselines cross-aligned, and small details obsessed over.
This session shows how to finesse your type, going beyond the generic defaults to produce readable type that will massively enhance the credibility of your documents.
You’ll learn how to:
- Kern with confidence
- Go modular and control spacing with grids
- Fix (and prevent) composition problems
- Finesse the micro typography
