Improve Your Typography with Responsive Web Design

A session at Society for Technical Communication Summit 2014

Tuesday 20th May, 2014

4:15pm to 5:00pm

Your content is the most important part of your website, so it’s essential to make sure that the text looks good and is easy to read no matter what device type or screen size it's being viewed on. One size does not fit all when it comes to typography, but with responsive web design you can use media queries to adjust type qualities such as size, line height, column width, margins, hyphenation, and even typeface depending on the size of the user's screen. Learn how you can use CSS to apply design rules that will make your typography look better and perform better across devices.

A basic knowledge of HTML and CSS is recommended for this session.
