THE TALKS

Nadezda Kuzmina: Fonts in video games
Games are a very special environment if we speak about typefaces. Whenever fonts are mentioned we usually think about web typography or print design. Seldom video games are part of this discussion, despite it offering many new facets and own special challenges. Nadya delved deep into this subject during her own pixel font project and will offer some of her experiences in her talk, outlining her development and design process.
