Create Fonts with CSS
When cascading style sheets really began to emerge in the mid 1990s, few knew at the time the change in digital design that would result; change, in many ways, that continues to this very day.
Most designers know that CSS provides the ability to separate the style from the substance, changing the layout of web pages (and those pages' elements and styles) in a matter of clicks. But, and for the first time in digital design history (as far as I can recall), CSS can now also be used to design the text characters on the page itself.
CSS SANS, a project led by Yusuke Sugomori, is a font that is created entirely by CSS. Designers can select the position, set the border, choose a color and can even skew the character to create an italic effect.
While it seems like a lot of work to implement, it does show what's possible and how CSS may evolve in the future.
