Glyphs Magic Day (workshop)
Rainer Erich Scheichelbauer
Museum of Moscow / Moscow
No prior experience in type design required, some experience with vector drawing tools (e.g., Illustrator) useful.
Bring your MacBook with Glyphs 2 preinstalled. Participants receive an extended trial license and can purchase their own full license at a discount.
Learn how to:
create a variable font from scratch
prepare outlines for glyph variations
trace down and fix errors, avoid potential pitfalls
optional settings (custom parameters)
useful scripts and plug-ins for the workflow
export and test in AI and web browsers
animate a glyph in a web browser
You will be taken through a Variable Font workflow, with ample opportunity for questions and feedback. That means that also Multiple Master technology and interpolation in general will be addressed, and the small details that can make a difference.
