A Variable Font implemented with fallback fonts
Resize the browser window and see how the typeface on this page changes. On narrow screens the text is condensed to fit more words into one line, on bigger screens the body text gets wider. The heading is always at least slightly condensed to make a more compact appearance. This is done by only using one single font file.
How does it work? This page is set in the beautiful typeface Venn by Dalton Maag. It’s a variable font that can fluidly change its weight and width. If the browser does not support variable fonts, the fallback web fonts of Venn will be shown in Regular and Bold and there will be no condensed text. Toggle between the variable font and the fallback fonts to see the differences.
