Join Val Head for an in-depth discussion in this video Next steps: The future of responsive typography, part of Responsive Typography Techniques.
…In this final video, I'll share with you some interesting places responsive…typography might go, and some resources you may want to check out next.…Responsive design is a relatively new thing.…We've really only been talking about it for the last few years, and…that means we've really only scratched the…surface of what responsive typography could be.…What kinds of things might we see in responsive typography next?…It's impossible to predict the future of course, but some very interesting ideas…have surfaced on the web.…For example, this interesting experiment by Marko Dugonjić.…
This experiment shows what it might be like if our type…adjusts itself based on how far away we are from our screen.…Try it for yourself with your laptop's webcam.…As you move your face closer to the screen the type gets smaller.…And as you're further away it gets bigger.…It's not all that far-fetched to suggest that our future laptops…might be aware of how far away we are from them,…so this could actually be something we see in the future.…
