19-Aug-2019, Day 1, Print design:


  • Remaking Media – Design trends  
  • The Pace of Print (how print can standout in a digital world)
  • Variable Fonts  – Covering new font technology (exercises)

More toward pure design, Variable Fonts are growing in popularity and understanding how they work can unlock a world of possibility for news organizations wanting to create their own distinctive look. A variable font allows the user to create thousands of custom variations of a typeface, meaning that while two organizations may use the same typeface — they each have their own custom version. Customization was something that used to cost thousands of dollars that is now virtually free with the purchase of the type.
