ABOUT







Brian Stell

Brian Stell works in the Font and Text team within Google's Internationalization Engineering group. He has been focused on engineering to make web fonts fast for all languages including Chinese, Japanese, and Korean.

Speaker at ATypI 2013 in Amsterdam: Roboto: faster than a speeding bullet. The abstract sounds interesting: This talk looks at the current status of Google's work to deliver fonts 'instantly' to Chrome users. With 'instant' fonts, website designers no longer have to choose between web fonts (that slow the site down) or 'web safe' fonts (that are only available in limited styles). Imagine being free to use your branding fonts in extra-light, book, normal, medium, bold, or ultra-bold - with italic, condensed, and slab variants. A brief overview of how the technology works is presented along with references to more information. Also discussed are efforts to make this work on other major browsers.
