Designing typefaces is a tough business, but someone’s gotta do it. Why not you? In this action-packed half-day workshop, typography and web fonts pro Thomas Phinney (FontLab, Adobe, Extensis) will dig deep into the freshly released web font technologies that will add to the creative arsenal of web designers.
Take advantage of the wide world of glyphs…add them to fonts and include all of the proper outline construction and spacing. Oh, and Thomas will cover some do’s and don’ts to keep your nose clean and everything nice and legal.
Learn to build fonts using OpenType coding that lets you control ligatures, kern pairs and special characters, as well as using honest-to-goodness small caps.
