Variable Fonts, the next chapter in digital typography
What are Variable Fonts and how can this emerging technology already be exploited? Dalton Maag will give a practical insight into this new technology, explain how it’s developed, and show what is out there to discover in this changing typographic landscape. Variable Fonts can be space saving, increase performance, and allow responsive and dynamic typography, but next to technical advantages, this new format has inspired new creative applications as designers are discovering typographic solutions that have not been possible until now.
The workshop will allow for a deeper dive into the subject. Participants will be guided through a hands-on workshop, experiencing the basic drawing principles of digital type design that will help them them to understand how Variable Fonts are constructed. The tool for the exercise will be Adobe Illustrator. The outcome will be a typographic artwork.
