In your @font-face

A session at Fronteers 2011

Friday 7th October, 2011

4:00pm to 5:00pm (AMT)

We finally have the ability to serve custom fonts to all popular browsers. However, like everything in our profession, there’s a minefield of gotchas and peculiarities between browsers, devices and operating systems.

Although fonts are a design asset, this talk will be technical. We’ll look at what goes into a font file and how you can get rid of bits you may not need without damaging rendering for particular users.

We’ll investigate common pitfalls in performance made by almost, if not all, font delivery networks. We’ll also discover how the legal fluff surrounding typefaces can be a massive road-blocking joy-void.
