Typography is the most important aspect of great design and UX, but can’t come at the expense of performance or we risk our designs never being seen. Variable fonts are coming, and will change everything: with a single font file that can scale in size, width, weight and even x-height—exactly as the type designer envisioned—all controllable via CSS.
  • What are variable fonts, and when can they be used 
  • Why type is the voice of your words, and how that voice just became a chorus 
  • How to expand the dynamic range of your design with type 
  • Where to be restrained and when to experiment: think character widths on small screens, or even responding to ambient light with stronger character weights
