Variable Font Workshop with Typearture

Thu-Sat 4–6 February 2021, 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm CET

  • Introduction: what are variable fonts, how does it work, what are the possibilities?
  • Glyphs app: how to create a letter, how to make it variable?
  • Creation: design one or more characters in Glyphs
  • Implementation: export to a variable font file, set up CSS and HTML page
  • Playing: test and refine the variable font

As the workshop is split over three days, in sessions of 2 hours, we will spend day one looking at some of the key things you need to know about variable fonts and start creating or own. In day two we look at the results of day one and introduce color fonts. On day three we look at each other’s color font results and learn how to implement the fonts in HTML/CSS.
