Type design has always had a relationship with technology, and now with variable fonts there are lots of opportunities in that relationship to make type design more exciting than ever. Variable fonts are not only about designing letterforms and making them look good, but about creating systems that offer, to all kinds of users, their own level of interactivity defined by the type designer, manipulated by designers, and consumed by the users. But what will these systems look like, for each of these groups of people? This presentation will look at what is possible with all interfaces for designing, manipulating, and consuming variable fonts.
