Spend a Full Day Immersed With A Leading Responsive Typography Master

Web fonts have been around for a few years now, as has Responsive Web Design. But there are still lots of questions about performance, usability and consistency across browsers and devices. While there has been much written about how typography and RWD are connected, there is very little out there that tackles the challenges of using RWD type effectively.

This workshop will do just that: explore the world of web fonts and responsive type, what web fonts are, how they work and why you should be using them.

Join RWD typography expert Jason Pamental and come away with loads of concrete skills to make your sites work beautifully on every device and platform.

How We'll Spend The Day

We've already held over 25 workshops holding over 1000 attendees. In this time we've discovered ways to schedule the day so it goes smoothly and efficiently.

Regardless if you're in-person or participating with us online you'll have the full ability to replay things you missed, get your questions answered LIVE and interact with the teacher throughout the day.

This workshop will start with the basics of typography on the web, and what it means to make it responsive. We’ll them move through 3-4 hands-on lessons exploring how to put it all into action.

By the end of the day you’ll have several example pages you’ve made responsive, and have a collection of tips, tricks and snippets to build into your own projects with a minimum of fuss.

If time and participant experience allow, we’ll look at how using something like Sass can help make your work that much more portable and repeatable, making your efforts to make your type responsive go that much further.

Is This Workshop For Me?

‘Traditional’ graphic designers need to know how to bring their knowledge of typography to the web, how to find what’s available, how to use web fonts and understand the technological limitations.

Web designers – many of whom don’t have a traditional design education – need to understand the value of typography, what it can bring to their design and what to watch out for when implementing web fonts.

Front-end developers are just as important: they’re handed the job of incorporating web fonts into the site and expected to do so successfully. Putting that first line of JavaScript or CSS in place is easy. Making sure the best methods for embedding are used, ensuring fallbacks are in place and tuned, and getting the best performance takes knowledge, time and a bit of persistence.

Prerequisites

It’s ok to not have a deep background in typography, but it will be helpful to have a basic familiarity with HTML, CSS and a bit of JavaScript. Lots of sample code will be provided but you should be comfortable with a code editor and with getting pixels under your fingernails. Knowledge of CSS pre-processors like LESS or Sass would be great, but is not required.

You'll Either LOVE This Workshop Or You Don't Pay. Period.

Our attendees are ecstatic by the high-quality, relevant content they receive at these workshops.

We cover everything in explicit detail (and the things we miss are covered by answers to YOUR questions) from basic to advanced tactics you can start working with the very same day.

We don't want you to miss out on this opportunity because you've been to less-than-stellar workshops in the past. We promise you, ours are very unique.

That's why if you attend the workshop and aren't absolutely thrilled with the content… if you don't think it's worth the admission price… We refuse to accept your money. We will more than gladly issue you a full refund, so you risk nothing.

We're very specific about exactly what you're getting here… so we rarely have requests for refunds.

What Past Attendees Are Saying

"Superb presentation from a genuine domain expert. I learned a ton today."

Steve Jakubowski

"Keep up the good work. I've attended a lot of online workshops, and they are very shallow and unpractical. Most of the time, online people are treated as second class, but still paying citizens. Here we get all the content and get to participate as well (if only there was a way to get those cookies...)."

Adrian Murillo

"The class was great. It was really cool to get a bunch of links to example code to look at during the presentation and after the class."

Nate Yourchuck

"Good location and facility. Great technology for capture, presentation layout and video streaming. Really excellent being able to view the videos afterwards. It takes away the sense of having to absorb everything immediately or else lose it into the ether. It was fun. What more can you ask for?"

Laurence Bates

"Really well run...loved the communication pre-event. Very impressed with everything...this was my first online conference purchase, but I would definitely consider doing it again."

Jeff Sims

"I really enjoyed the online workshop experience. It is much better than just watching videos. I was able to participate in the conversations and benefit from other folks' questions."

Dana Greenberg

"You guys did a really great job! I cannot say enough good things about the experience."

Richard Ranke

"Everything was first class: excellent instructor, material, video, moderator, audio. Thank you!"
