  • Keynote: From the Dark Side… Speak to Me

    by Vincent Connare

    Vincent explains why he created Comic Sans and why it’s what design is all about. While working at Microsoft he created ‘web fonts’ for the first Internet Explorer. He will discuss the goals and challenges in creating these fonts and creating fonts for user interfaces and small devices like e-books and mobile phones. Hinting, font technology and screen rendering will be discussed. Now that modern devices are rendering very high resolutions is hinting no longer necessary?

    At 10:00am to 10:45am, Friday 17th June
