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.

Hinting, font technology and screen rendering will be discussed. Now that modern devices are rendering very high resolutions is hinting no longer necessary?
