We’re giving a lecture on designing for the screen, or more specifically, designing for the web. We’re premiering the lecture first for Refresh Denver at Galvanized in Denver, Colorado, and the following day for Startup Week at Human Design in Boulder, Colorado. Both lectures are free and open to the public. You must register via the links below in order to attend (there is limited space for both talks).

Lecture Summary

Type designer Erik Spiekermann has said that designing for the screen is just designing for bad paper. We’d argue it’s more like magic paper, but the point is that good designers have always embraced the limitations caused by tricky substrates—oftentimes even leading to innovation. Our respect for the classic principles of print design has merged with our love for the endless possibilities of technology to form the foundations of our approach to interactive design and development.
