Many designers still rely on third parties for TT and webfont production. This workshop shows how easy it is to take control of this issue, and empowers designers so they can take more production matters in their own hands.

Opinions can differ greatly among type designers and typographers when it comes to decisions about letter shapes. One of the most contested letters in that respect is the German sharp S, even more so its cap variant, and even more so among native speakers of German. Recent publications such as Hermann Schmidt Verlag’s ‘niße’ book, the addition of the cap sharp S to Unicode and most recently also to official German orthography, show that there is ample need for discussion. In this double presentation, an opinionated Swiss and an opinionated Austrian will discuss this letter, possible and not so possible shapes, good and bad design decisions, and will probably fail at the attempt of settling all questions once and for all.
