A culmination of the brightest Drupal minds in the technology hub of the world


Modern Web Typography in Drupal

Over the past two years, the state of web typography has drastically changed, especially so in Drupal. The legal, technical, and usability roadblocks preventing most of us from using web fonts before are largely gone. We can now select and apply a huge variety of typefaces with just a few clicks in Drupal and do amazing things with text that were never possible with traditional font replacement techniques.

We'll cover what changed to make web fonts work, demonstrate what can be done with web typography in Drupal today, and recommend approaches to new challenges such as selecting the right font and dealing with cross-browser font rendering.

About the speakers:

Ken Woodworth, Art Director at Aten Design Group, is leading design for DrupalCon Denver.
Scott Reynen, Lead Developer at Aten Design Group, maintains @font-your-face, the Drupal web font management system.
Garret Voorhees, Senior Designer at Chapter Three
