Giulia Laco joins us to discuss The Evolution of Web Typography: from System Fonts to Variable Fonts.
The second episode in the Design for Geeks LIVE talks series sees Piccia Neri in conversation with Web Designer/Developer Giulia Laco on the evolution of web typography: from the drabness of system fonts to the magical brand new world of variable fonts.
We’ve gone from the dreary system fonts of the beginnings, to the seemingly limitless possibilities offered by the new technology of variable fonts.
But what are the pitfalls of variable fonts? Is the future thrilling – or is it daunting?
I met Giulia at WordCamp Verona, where she delivered an outstanding talk on the fascinating subject of typography on the web. Giulia and I share an academic background in the humanities, as well as a view on the web as a place where design, marketing and development should work hand in hand. We’re privileged to have Giulia Laco on the second episode of Design for Geeks’ LIVE talks.
