The Web Typography Conference
A day of inspiration and cutting edge techniques from worldwide experts

Duke of York’s Picturehouse, Brighton, UK

Ampersand brings together experts from all aspects of web typography, including branding and editorial designers, web developers, visual designers, browser makers, and type designers.

As web designers and developers, we want to create websites with expressive, engaging and readable typography that performs well across all devices.

With so many factors to take into account from typeface choice and layout through to page speed, responsive design and variable fonts, it’s hard to know how to keep up.

Over the course of a single day, Ampersand will give you the full picture of what typography can and should be on the web today. Whether you’re just starting out or a seasoned pro, you’ll find masses to learn and take away.

  • Bianca Berning from Dalton Maag on the amazing potential of variable fonts.

  • Michael Johnson from Johnson Banks on the crucial role of typography in branding.

  • Mandy Michael from Seven West Media on wild experiments with text and CSS.

  • Mark Porter from Mark Porter Associates on the impact of our fast-shifting age of digital design.

  • Dan Rhatigan from Adobe Typekit on how new font tech can increase the visual impact and versatility of digital type.

  • David Jonathan Ross from DJR on the design and effective use of extreme fonts on the web.

  • Jen Simmons from Firefox on groundbreaking new tools for web typographers.

  • Irene Vlachou from TypeTogether on dancing around the design space: the story of making Protipo, an innovative new variable font.
  • One more fantastic speaker to be announced soon. Stay tuned!
