A variable decorative sans by David Berlow.
The documentation contains a description of the project and typographic contents of the repo.
The fonts folder contains the DecovarAlpha-VF.ttf file, the variable font.
The sources folder contains the fonts with axis data in their names, used to create the Variations Font.
Each of Decovar’s axes has a default value of 0 and a maximum value of 1000, and are defined in the designspace file. Currently, Decovar’s axes (and their four letter tags) are as follows:
- BLDA: Inline
- BLDB: Worm
- WMX2: Weight
- SKLA: Inline Skeleton
- SKLB: Worm Skeleton
- SKLD: Stripes
- TRMA: Rounded
- TRMB: Flared
- TRMC: Rounded Slab
- TRMD: Sheared
- TRME: Bifurcated
- TRMF: Open Inline Terminal
- TRMG: Slab
- TRMK: Inline Terminal
- TRML: Worm Terminal
You can implement them in CSS like this:
font-variation-settings: "SKLA" 1000, "TRMG" 750;
The Decovar variable font was created with RoboFont and is generated using fontmake. A build script
build.sh is included that will build the variable font using fontmake, copy it to the
/fonts folder, and offer a subsetted version.
$ cd sources/2-build $ bash build.sh
