Variable Futures

Experimenting with variable typography.

Variable Futures: A Typographic Exploration aims to integrate variable fonts into the context of the web and related technologies. We look to use a UX (User Experience) process to investigate the prospects for creating new tools for the use of variable fonts on the web.

Variable Futures is presented in three distinct exploration spaces; firstly, we display our findings from a solely conceptual basis, building on previous work from significant contributors in the field of variable fonts. Secondly, we experiment in two- and three- dimensional capacities, expanding the Variable Futures exploration frontier. Finally, we bind together all previous findings to produce a series of experimental variable font tools primarily for use on the web.
