Variable fonts have been a topic of growing curiosity in the type world — but how do we use them on the web? Have you ever thought about building your own variable type tester, or wondered how they could be brought to life through code?
Diversity and Equity are important to all of us at Letterform Archive, and we are committed to increasing opportunities for underrepresented groups within the type and design communities.
We are offering one BIPOC/Equity scholarship seat in this workshop.
To apply for this scholarship, please complete and submit to us the short form linked here a week prior to the start of the workshop.

Kevin Yeh is a partner at Space Type Continuum, a Brooklyn based type studio that operates at the intersection of type, design, and technology. Kevin has a background in computer vision, graphics and robotic learning, and holds an MS in computer science and film studies from the University of Texas at Austin. He also works at Nava PBC, where he partners with government agencies to build simple and reliable public digital services. Prior to Nava, he supported artists and creatives as an engineer at Kickstarter, acted as director of innovation for HackTX, and participated in the hackNY residential fellowship as a student and mentor.
As a technologist, his work reflects broad and varied interests to imagine, reconstruct, and relate to the natural world through the lenses of augmented reality, computer animation, and mobile hardware. By wrangling complex machinations and building open and accessible tools, he hopes to empower others to experiment with and leverage technology within their own communities to create something new.
