⚠️ 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.

multiplexed

Multiplexed typefaces (sometime alternately referred to as “duplexed” or “uniwidth”) maintain a consistent set width across at least one axis of variation, like weight, allowing for adjustments without causing text to reflow.

See also the more specific tags for multiplexed weight and multiplexed posture.

The Immortel family of serif typefaces comprises four variants (Infra, Colera, Vena, and Acedia), all designed with multiplexed set widths to be interchangeable without causing text to reflow. The Infra and Vena variants – inspired by Robert Granjon and Jacques-François Rosart, respectively – are intended for use in running body text. They include “Median” italics for longer blocks of text, as well as more exaggerated italics for stronger emphasis. They both also offer a variable grade axis for slight weight adjustments, to accommodate different typographic environments and user preferences.
