Graphics are key to the user experience of online content, especially now that users are accessing that content on a multitude of devices: smartphones, tablets, laptops, and desktops.

During this quick session, Christopher reads portions from his latest book, Designing Web and Mobile Graphics, followed by a book signing.

The information-packed book covers how to use of graphics that begins with HTML and CSS, and delves into the worlds of typography, color, transparency, accessibility, imagery, and layout for optimal delivery on all the different devices people use today.

The book covers:

- lessons on typography, icons, color, and images
- the latest information on HTML5, CSS3, and other modern technologies
- in-depth exploration of image formats: GIF, PNG, JPEG, and SVG
- ways to employ adaptive strategies for responsive web design
