Nick and Florina Muntenescu speech:

Typesetting: designing and building beautiful text layouts

The design and usability of an app can be heavily influenced by one of the most common UI elements: TextViews. From font selection and pairing, type size, scale and alignment to line breaking… there’s a lot to consider when displaying text.

There are many best practices from print and the web that we can learn from.

This talk covers the design principles behind producing balanced, legible text layouts and how to implement them on Android.
