Salon: Dive into Variable Fonts with Dalton Maag

Font design is both an art and science, and as designers, we understand how complex they can be. Come meet Operations Director, Richard Bailey, and Creative Director, Lukas Paltram, 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.
