Tim Brown: Flexible Typesetting
TDC Salon, October 18, 2018, NYC
For the first time in hundreds of years, because of the web, the role of the typographer has changed. We no longer decide; we suggest. We no longer simply choose typefaces, font sizes, line spacing, and margins; we prepare and instruct text to make those choices for itself.
Tim Brown is a designer, writer, speaker, and toolmaker, with a focus on typography.
As Head of Typography at Adobe Typekit, he thinks about product direction, designs software, advises integration partners, and helps novices and experts alike hone their typographic skills.
