Type 3.0: The future of typography today - ebookcraft 2015

Intangible font software renders impermanent text in a myriad of electronic formats. The fast pace of change requires type designers and typographers to exercise care and craft-sense in order to produce pages which are beautiful and functional. The foundation of quality starts with typefaces which perform reliably and beautifully under a wide range of conditions. This talk will touch on the challenges and solutions of Type 3.0 for engineers, designers and authors.

Presented by Steve Matteson (Monotype) at ebookcraft 2015 / BookNet Canada and eBOUND Canada / March 11, 2015

The presentation starts with the quote “Everything that counts in typography is a subtlety”. How illustrative can a presentation about typography be without accompanying it with any of the slides that the presenter chose to convey his point?

Thanks for the link to the slides.

Not all of Steve's slides have been included in the video, only up to the slide 29 (from a total of 58) at ~11:30 (from a total of ~29 min). All the other slides are not displayed in the video.

Hi Jorge,

You're absolutely right; apologies for the confusion! I've uploaded the correct version of the video with all the slides. Thanks for letting us know.

Am pretty sure a lot of the slides have the incorrect typefaces, I'm afraid. For example at 16:35 the bottom text is not in Amasis, it looks like Helvetica (or similar) has been substituted, presumably because the typeface was missing on the computer used to view the slides.

Hi Paul,

You're right, some of the fonts have not shown up correctly in the slides. Unfortunately, it's not something we can fix at this point, so we hope you'll be able to take the imagery as suggestive, and that the points come across in any case.
