Better Typographic & Editorial Design with Variable Fonts

A presentation at TDC Online Workshop in in New York, NY, USA by Jason Pamental

Part talk, part workshop—this event will introduce attendees to variable fonts (the latest iteration of the OpenType specification) and look at all the ways they can transform how we think about typography on the web. We’ll start with a showcase of the different kinds of standard and custom axes of variation, how they work on the web, and then look at ways they can transform how we think about what typography is, and how we practice it. Finally, we’ll take a look at how variable fonts can enable greater design flexibility and bring better editorial design to the web then you ever thought possible.
