GT Flexa

Where to start with this specimen!? As with many specimens for extensive variable fonts, GT Flexa's content is heavily focussed on explaining the benefits and design attributes. It does this wonderfully through illustrations, animations, and beautifully designed content.

Corundum Text

A delightfully illustrated specimen full of lovely detail. The stacked ice cream pots are particularly clever.
