1. Achieving a thorough grasp of typography can take a lifetime, but moving beyond the basics is within your reach right now, as Jason Santa Maria explains in this hour-long design presentation captured live at An Event Apart Boston on June 18, 2012.

    Through an understanding of our design tools and how they relate to the web as a medium, we can empower ourselves to use type in meaningful and powerful ways.

    Learn how to look at typefaces with a discerning eye, different approaches to typographic planning, how typography impacts the act of reading, and how to choose and combine appropriate typefaces from an aesthetic and technical point of view.

    An Event Apart Boston 2012 featured 12 great speakers and sessions, plus a full day workshop on designing for mobile and beyond. More videos will be posted here soon. An Event Apart will hold eight conferences in 2013. Attend the one nearest you, or pick a city you’ve always wanted to visit. For details, visit aneventapart.com.

    Throughout the history of science, diagrams and graphs have been essential thinking tools. In the past, such visualizations were drawn with pen on paper, and could embrace the directness, freedom, and expressiveness of hand drawing. Most modern visualizations are programmed instead, where a single description can dynamically generate a unique picture for any dataset.

    Today's tools offer the benefits of one or the other -- either directness or dynamics -- but not both. Photoshop and Illustrator allow direct-manipulation drawing of static pictures. D3, R, and Processing allow indirect-manipulation coding of dynamic pictures.

    This talk presents a tool for drawing dynamic pictures -- creating data-driven visualizations, like D3, but via direct manipulation of the picture itself, like Illustrator.

    Recorded at the Stanford HCI seminar on February 1, 2013.
