Between East and West: web typography and how it can inspire modern layouts

A presentation at JSConf.Asia 2018 in in Singapore 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.
