Type on Screen is the definitive introduction to using typography in screen-based applications, from film and video to websites, electronic publications, and mobile apps. This practical primer shows how to combine classic concepts of typographic form and structure with screen-based technologies and principles of user interaction and animation.
Type on Screen offers guidance on how to choose typefaces for the screen; how to style beautiful, functional text and navigation; how to apply principles of animation to text; and how to create compelling logos and icons. Reinforced with dos, don'ts, and basic exercises and tutorials, Type on Screen can be used as a textbook for college-level courses in web design, interaction design, and motion graphics and is an indispensable guide for any designer or developer seeking practical and inspirational information about digital typography.
