If you missed our mega-awesome Gigaom Roadmap design conference last week, fear not! We’re bringing you highlight from the general sessions, free-o-charge right here, every Monday.

Let’s kick things off in style with a talk between Jeff Veen, VP of Products at Adobe and Erik Spiekermann, designer and typeface god at Edenspiekermann.
