Variable fonts are the future of typography: a single font file containing all font-family members and the ability to create thousands—sometimes millions—more. Variable fonts allow designers to fine-tune text in desktop applications, web browsers, and other digital environments; to create engaging lightweight, live-text animations; and to improve user experience through responsive typography. And Variable delivers all of this in a file size much smaller than traditional static font families. Join Monotype Creative Type Director Charles Nix for this webinar to  learn more about what Variable fonts are, why you want them, and where to find them—and explore the immense creative possibilities that will define the future of type.
