Event description

For its first 20 years, the web had a problem with typography: Font choices were limited to those pre-installed on your computer, with styling options restricted to bold and italic. Different computers had different fonts pre-installed so the same page would render inconsistently, and it was difficult to create web layouts that worked as well as print designs. Compromises and hacks ruled.

Enter Variable fonts, the solution to the inconsistencies and latencies of the past. Learn what they are, their benefits and how the Google Fonts team is working to continue growing its library of them.

Join us for an hour long presentation followed by a live Q&A session.
