The future of web design with Variable Fonts

Mandy Michael Development Manager Seven West Media

The web is entering a new era of design opportunities with the introduction of CSS Grid, Photoshop like effects such as filters and blend modes and importantly the increasing support for Variable Fonts. What practical and creative opportunities do variable fonts offer us? What are the benefits over standard fonts? How can we use them in our web projects?

Lets explore the practicalities and possibilities of Variable Fonts on the web and what we can do to make the most out of them.
