When East meets West: Web typography and how it can inspire modern layouts

A presentation at You Gotta Love Frontend 2017 in in Tel Aviv-Yafo, Israel by Chen Hui Jing

This talk traces the parallel history of western and eastern typography from handwriting to the internet age, setting the context for how the web is a brand new medium for typesetting. CSS allows us to implement advanced typographic features and multi-directional layouts, that not only benefits internationalisation, but opens up a myriad of options for creative and interesting layouts in general as well.
