Dynamic Font Day 2018

International conference for typography in digital media

When »Variable Fonts« came up fall 2016, the Dynamic Font Day was the first conference to profoundly discuss this joint project of Adobe, Apple, Google and Microsoft. Two years later, it’s time to verify the promises of the inventors and promoters. How far support for the new format has grown? Where are the first smart implementations out there? How far still to go to a real responsive typography? — Or will this whole story end in a huge flop?

Typography in digital media has grown by leaps and bounds during the last years. The wheel is rapidly turning for designers and developpers. The Dynamic Font Day 2018 will bring the latest updates, illuminates chances and risks and helps you, to find your own position in this ultrafast digital world.

Dynamic Font Day 2016

The typographic turn in digital media

Since webfonts were (re)born in 2009, they have developed a life far beyond the web. Nowadays, webfonts work in ebooks, apps, e-mags, interfaces and even on the desktop. Their dynamic capabilities are being explored, users appreciate the benefits of OpenType features and finally, the fonts themselves are becoming responsive.

Webfontday 2014

Modern Times in Digital Typography

Dynamic Type brings a new dimension to retina displays, responsive websites make use of different font variants for different viewports, and ever more apps are not just interactive but also visually and typographically refined. E-books offer great potential for better typography and readability; countless displays on fridges, tooth brushes and gas meters are waiting to be conquered by designers: exciting times!

Webfontday 2012

Type goes Interface

Web or mobile – well conceived interface design is still scarce. User friendliness and (typo)graphic quality often seem to be incompatible. Many websites offer playful technical features, yet often fail to communicate their content. Simply introducing webfonts will not be the solution. The Webfontday 2012 is dedicated to courageous and extraordinary solutions in web design. It will provide hands-on tricks for everyday work and display brilliant and inspiring examples.
