Font design is both an art and science, and as designers, we understand how complex they can be. Come meet Creative Director, Eleni Beveratou, from Dalton Maag — a typeface design studio based in the UK — and learn about variable fonts: how they are made and what they can do.
The introduction of variable font technology has proven to be a game-changer in how we make fonts and use them online. The new technology has also opened up a huge creative playground for designers. Join us and learn more about how these new fonts make online typography more efficient and responsive.
