Seit Webfonts 2009 ihre beeindruckende Erfolgsstory im Web angetreten haben, sind sie heute weit vielfältiger als nur im Internet einsetzbar. Ob in eBooks, Apps, eMagazines, Interfaces oder zuweilen sogar auf dem Desktop – ihre dynamischen Qualitäten wurden und werden ständig weiter ausgereizt und die Einsatzmöglichkeiten erweitert. Heute können Anwender die im Printsektor längst gängigen OpenType Features nutzen oder sogar Responsive Fonts einsetzen.
Der Dynamic Font Day 2016 ist die konsequente Weiterführung der »Webfontdays«, mit denen die Typographische Gesellschaft München seit 2010 begeistert. Es ist DIE Konferenz zur typografischen Evolution und Revolution in den digitalen Medien.
Der Dynamic Font Day versteht sich als internationale Plattform digitaler Typografie. Die Vorträge werden in englischer Sprache gehalten.
