There are compelling questions about how type foundries can offer web designers an expressive medium (and readers a rich one), and what it means for typography to be visually, mechanically, and culturally appropriate to the web.

Join Jonathan Hoefler on an exploration of this side of webfonts, and a discussion of where the needs of designers meet the needs of readers. You’ll get to see why webfonts promise so much more than just “fonts on the web.”

Jonathan presents all the works behind building fonts. They are not just “fancy” fonts, but are built regarding of the context in which they will be used. There are a lot of problems to solve to make a good font.
