Bethany Heck

Breaking the Rules of Type Systems

There’s been much said about the art of creating typographic systems, but few advocate for the value of multi-typeface systems. Bethany will discuss the advantages typographic diversity can bring to design, challenge commonly-held beliefs about typeface selection, reveal techniques for pairing typefaces, and how to get the most informational hierarchy out of your content, giving you more opportunities to create rich and diverse visual languages through type.

This talk is scheduled for Saturday, June 13 at 3:30pm as part of the main Typographics conference schedule. You must register for the Typographics conference to attend.
