Is TTF the next big graphic design format for the web? With variable font technology, an illustration, a symbol, an icon, a logo, a logotype can be responsive and adapt to its medium. Plus, it is very small, and a single file (and hence, a single server access) can contain many symbols. Colors, transparencies, animations: no problem. Time to abandon less adaptive formats like PDF, SVG, or PNG.

In this workshop, we will create a responsive logo, a few icons, add colors, and create a small animation using very simple HTML and CSS for the web.
