UX Virtual Symposium: Designing the Details - Writing, Typesetting, and Layout

In this March 23 UX Virtual Symposium, three professionals will pick apart the details for us and analyze how language patterns in the interface copy are as critical as the color palette, how the elements of typography can elevate a design, and how CSS grid is opening up the field of layout choices to designers in exciting and groundbreaking ways.

In this 3-hour online event, you'll:

  • Create interface copy that is consistent in voice and tone and that can be iterated upon across all touchpoints and channels
  • Learn about the new opportunities in layout and design that CSS Grid offers
  • Understand the elements of typography, how to shape text blocks with the right typographic choices, and how to select and apply typefaces that mirror the voice and tone of the text and message you convey

You’ll understand how layout and design, typography, typesetting, and language work together to successfully convey an experience, and what you can do optimize the look and language of your work.

Thursday, March 23, Noon ET through 3pm ET. (Find the time in your area.)

Save your spot for just $99, or invite your entire team for $249.
