Video of Typecast Live Demo

By Paul McKeever on Thursday 10th of November 2011

If you missed the live demo, or are just intrigued by what we’re up to then we have a treat in store.

Thanks to everyone who tuned into our second screencast. We found it hard to nail a time that would suit everybody (sleep is for the weak, people), so we had to create a special time capture device that would enable designers from the past, present and future to tune in.

It didn’t work though, so we just recorded it:

The video starts with a bit of an overview of the thinking and ideas behind Typecast, followed by a demonstration of the app in action, and a Q&A session at the end.

We show how you can use Typecast to:

  • design from the content out;
  • use a semantic structure in your design;
  • make your content beautiful using typefaces from a range of font services;
  • finesse your typography by tweaking things by eye.

Give us your feedback

We want to make Typecast incredibly useful and really value any feedback you have. Would you use Typecast? What barriers or objections would prevent you from getting started? If Typecast was magic (which it almost is) what would you like it to do?

We’ll be keeping tabs on the comments here so do let us know what you think.
