“Typography in Web Design“
Typography is an integral part of web design. No matter how fancy or minimalist your website design, the text on your site needs to get your message across. How the text appears is just as important as the words themselves. This talk will cover the basic best practices of typography in web design, trends for 2013, and an introduction to Google Fonts. This is Jasmine’s presentation from WordCamp Ottawa 2013.
Presented by Jasmine Vesque a natural-born communicator who enjoys helping people share their most important stories and ideas. Her work revolves around her passions: digital communications, WordPress, and both web and print design.
We’re working on a new downtown location for the regular monthly meetings of the meetup since we’ve outgrown the libraries. As we have not settled on a new location yet, this meeting will at the James Street Pub. We have a private space in the basement to keep the meeting separate from the regular bar patrons. (This will not be our regular location.)
For more information on our fall plans see: http://www.meetup.com/The-Ottawa-WordPress-Group/messages/boards/thread/37910832/
We have a private space downstairs. Enter the main doors, turn left, and down the stairs.
No donations for this meeting! (We normally ask for a $4 donation to help cover the cost of the room and our Meetup fees, which total about $450/year)
