Variable Fonts (beta)

A simple resource for finding and trying variable fonts

⚠️ 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.

​A horizontal-stress, stencil, variable font that’s unusual because it’s a color font, but also because its variation doesn’t alter the glyph shapes like most variable fonts. Instead, color font technology, variable font technology, and OpenType contextual alternates are combined to cycle through multiple color combos. Users can generate versions with custom color palettes using DJR’s Color Font Customizer. (If the sample here is black and/or doesn’t change with the sliders, your browser doesn’t fully support variable color fonts yet.)
