Real Editorial Design on the Web with Variable Fonts


Duration: 50 mins

Graphic designers have customized layouts and title pages in magazines for decades. But limited technology and efforts to ‘systematize’ design has meant we’ve missed out on much of what good graphic design has to offer. Variable fonts combine with other modern CSS techniques to completely change how we think about design for the web.

Now that web publishing systems have advanced and we these new capabilities in CSS and variable fonts, it’s time to refocus on specifics. We can create compelling, unique design variations tailored for specific articles and stories rather than stay stuck in a single design for every piece of content. In this talk, Jason will look at powerful examples of publication and cover design, and show how many of those concepts can be incorporated in our own websites in compelling and sustainable ways.
