Free-ness as an aspect of type design

A session at Libre Graphics Meeting 2013

Friday 12th April, 2013

10:00am to 10:00am (WET)

Looking at how libre fonts have driven type technology on the web. Argues that on the web, 'being free' is a vital technological aspect of a font, just like 'legibility' or 'foreign language support'. Looks at how libre fonts have been adopted in huge numbers by designers of the web, and how libre fonts can enable high levels of usage and adoption that proprietary fonts cannot allow. Looks at how libre font designers could learn a few lessons from the fashion industry to inform on "what fonts will be used the most?"
