Fast and Fabulous – new font format not only for geeks

You get more for less! No, it is not bad advert for overpriced service. Variable fonts are very probably the future of type on the web. Jan's lecture will introduce you new font format which is making its place on the desks of typographers, in font production and more important – on the web. Weights, widths, slants, kilobytes, megabytes and even animations will be flying around.
