Day 2. Interpolation and Variable Fonts:

  • The production of a large font family by understanding the crucial role of interpolation and multiple masters.
    You will be introduced to create different axes by means of interpolation. You will understand the difference between masters and instances. Also, you will learn to make all your glyphs compatible in order to successfully set up your masters.
  • The workflow for recent versions of Glyphs to get introduced into Variable Fonts. You will learn to use the define values and redefine axes for implementation in variable fonts.
  • Learning to animate your glyphs in HTML/CSS using Variable Fonts technology.
