⚠️ 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.

​An experimental colorized version of Gimlet that exposes what goes on under the hood of a variable font, visualizing control points, bounding boxes, kerning, etc. The design of the underlying typeface and the visualization elements are both adjustable. As with DJR’s other color fonts, the default color palette can be customized with a web-based tool. (If the sample here is black and/or doesn’t change with the sliders, your browser doesn’t fully support variable color fonts yet.)

White On Black VF

  • White On Black VF
  • Black On White VF
1 1000

White On Black VF is a special-purpose variable font with just one glyph (㊎) demonstrating an issue related to the non-zero winding rule used for rendering fonts. The issue is especially problematic when negative glyphs are reversed out of a positive background shape. The weight axis also shows how the technique for avoiding the problem with static fonts – removing overlaps – isn’t a viable solution for variable fonts because the topology of overlapping shapes may change across variations. The counterpart font, Black On White VF, is made with the same shapes but with an additional circular path, showing how the issue is not present with more typical positive-on-negative glyphs. The fonts were produced by Ken Lunde using a glyph designed by Ryoko Nishizuka.
