iPhone : People sometimes suggest I should calm down about web performance because the web feels fine on *their* phone.

Surma and I pulled a little data to try to visualise why that might be both true and not particularly relevant:

iPhone : Variable fonts + Adobe design tools. Clearly, we have not reached our full potential.

Today in the #TypeLab at Typographics:

- AMA about Adobe
- Tell me what you’d like to see happen

The Type team has some solid momentum inside Adobe, but we need your input to sway execs.

Twitter Web Client : I'm on a C train listening to a group of 4th graders (I asked) talk about what it means to be transgender and I wish the whole world could witness their intelligence and openness and respect. It is a remarkable gift I have witnessed and makes me feel hopeful about the future.

iPhone : Newspaper: third of older people in NL (65 and over) still use paper banking, find digital banking hard. Quote on why: ‘too much text, words too small, logged out too quickly’. WCAG IRL

iPhone : Animating variable fonts, with the help of splitting.js – CodePen.IO demo: codepen.io/michellebarker…

iPhone : I love getting random book drops from OReilly Media (a wonderful author perk) but so far have received 9 copies of Melissa Perri ‘s ‘Escaping the Build Trap’ and am running out of PMs to give them too... maybe a good giveaway at the next #PVDUX meetup?! 😁

iPhone : If you want to have a play you can find that JS code I shared at JSConf.Asia for manipulating variable fonts on Github. Contributions welcome ☺️

iPhone : Fascinating conversation with folks from Lagash today. They’re doing some really interesting work blending AR and AI/ML. Fun chatting with them about how type plays a role in the UX & UI of those kinds of projects. Hoping to do this again soon!

iPhone : Hot tip with variable fonts I didn’t have time to mention is that Firefox DevTools had an INCREDIBLE variable fonts tool where you can tweak the fonts directly in the browser - great for designing in the browser! Highly recommend checking out their fonts panel! #jsconfasia

iPhone : My new site variablefonts.dev will share resources for developers to use variable fonts on the web.

I'll be adding more examples and resources over time but it's also on Github if you would like to contribute github.com/mandymichael/v…

iPhone : Can you believe the first #csscamp 2019 is quickly approaching! Its time to start planning your trip.

iPhone : Chris OBrien Hey Chris! Here’s a few: 3 issues of my weekly tips: rwt.io/typography-tip… rwt.io/typography-tip… and rwt.io/typography-tip…, plus a guide I wrote for MDN Web Docs developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web… #VariableFonts #typography
