Speaking at WordCamp NYC!

WordCampNYC – Oct 16-17I'm so excited for WordCamp NYC this weekend! There are going to be so many talented people there it is almost overwhelming! I feel so honored to be speaking amongst this incredible lineup. If you're going, come see me speak about Typography and Your Theme. If you live in NYC or just want to come to these other incredible sessions: All you need to do is Register for WCNYC today. Make sure to find me and tell me hello! :) Here is my session description:

Typography and Your Theme:

Believe it or not, generally WordPress sites are made up mostly of typography. This makes the relationship that these typographical elements have to each other very important. The New WordPress 3.0 default theme Twenty Ten has incredible typographical elements. In this talk I will be using a child of Twenty Ten as an example of customizing the theme’s typography. I will be going over how to plan these typographical elements out, their style and color, how to make a site/brand guideline for your Twenty Ten child theme to keep consistency, what different services to look at for your non-system fonts, typographical CSS tips and tricks, and how to account for every little detail and make sure no type element goes un-styled!
