Save the Datestart: On the first day of ATypI in Barcelona, we will unveil Glyphs 2 to the public.

‘Glyphs 2.0’

  • When: Wednesday, September 17th, 10:40 am
  • Where: BAU Design College, Barcelona
  • Who: Georg Seifert (schriftgestalt) & Rainer Erich Scheichelbauer (mekkablue)
  • Language: English

In 2011, Georg Seifert’s font editor Glyphs pushed the boundaries of what has to be expected from a 21st century font editor on the Mac. Now, the app is taking a major leap forward, and not only in terms of interface improvements. Version 2 will add some missing puzzle pieces, making Glyphs the full-fledged, all-in-one solution that type designers expect it to be. This presentation will give you a quick walkthrough of all major new features. Have fun with the new ‘font editor for everyone’.

Later that day, Rainer Erich will present a 10-minute Typo Tapas:

‘Typo Tapas: Font Gamification’

  • When: Wednesday, September 17th, 12:55 pm
  • Where: BAU Design College, Barcelona
  • Who: Rainer Erich Scheichelbauer (mekkablue)
  • Language: English

OpenType fonts can do fun stuff. Their built-in glyph substitution tables enable surprising and playful typographic interventions, or even small games in fonts. This Typo Tapas is a tour de force through a few GSUB table goodies, all live, no prefabricated slides. Sit back, relax, and have fun!
