⚠️ Notice: As a showcase of variable fonts, this site requires a web browser that supports OpenType font variation technology. It looks like your browser doesn’t, so please consider upgrading to one that does (the latest versions of Chrome work well, even on older operating systems). Otherwise, the font samples below will only appear as static fonts.

​Handjet started as an exercise with design students to make a typeface for handset printers and their 32-pixel vertical matrix, but grew into a large multi-script design.

In 2019, Google sponsored and extension and open-source release of the typeface. Consultants for the project include Maria Doreuli (Cyrillic), Irene Vlachou (Greek), Borna Izadpanah (Arabic), Khajag Apelian (Armenian), and Meir Sadan (Hebrew).

The font is provided with a warning that “variable fonts are relatively new and Handjet sometimes challenges the limits. You might get unpredictable, yet beautiful and somewhat amusing, rendering errors in Adobe software. It works well in browsers as far as we know.”
