There's a great opportunity to get out in front with tooling for Variable Fonts. A List Apart just published an article discussing in detail ideas for such tooling: https://alistapart.com/article/user-interfaces-for-variable-fonts For background, here's an article on what Variable Fonts are: https://www.subtraction.com/2017/06/08/dan-rhatigan-on-variable-fonts-and-the-future-of-typography/ I do expect when they hit, there will be a lot of talk about them and a lot of excitement. I could see where most forward-thinking designers never go back and use regular web fonts again.
