      “Women have long played an important role in the world of type design and continue to make great contributions to the type field. Yet a lack of cultural, ethnic, and gender diversity still exists in the industry, which if reversed could unearth new innovations and unanticipated opportunities.

In there, you’ll see a slider for each option (as defined by the font), letting you tweak your type ’til your heart’s content.”
