Oliver Schöndorfer's Talk

The Invisible Power of UI Typography

Tue 10th – 15:35

Text is an essential part of every user interface. However, many apps seem to neglect that. This results in a lost opportunity for branding at least (looking at you, Roboto) and bad UX at worst.

Typography to the rescue! After this entertaining and inspiring talk, you will be having practical guidelines, how to better pick and use typefaces for your next UI design. So you can let the uniqueness of your project shine, without losing its functionality.
