Web Fonts On A Diet

Typography is a fundamental part of good design, branding, readability and accessibility. Whether it be for print or the web. Web fonts enable all those mentioned, but without good optimsation, can come at a performance cost. In this talk I will go through some of the practices we are following to optimise web fonts, as well as a handy tool that can optimise our web fonts even further.
