Exploring Responsive Type
with Marie Otsuka

Variable fonts are often promoted for their flexibility in adapting to different device constraints. Here, we’ll explore their potential to respond to contexts outside the browser — considering type as a performative medium over time. Drawing from the design process behind the typeface Pentameter and its specimen site, Marie Otsuka (Occupant Fonts) will share how we might extend variable technology into our environments through creative coding.
