Glyphs team member Rainer Erich Scheichelbauer will be present throughout this year’s BITS Bangkok International Typography Symposium. He will give a Glyphs workshop on Friday, hang around at BITS Business Day on Saturday, and on Sunday, for the first time in Asia, deliver his tour-de-force font gamification presentation, ‘Yes, but can OpenType do this?’. See below for details.

Workshop: Introduction to Type Design with Glyphs

Friday, October 7, 2016
10:00 am – 3:00 pm

We will start by sketching a letter and digitising it. Then, we will add some letters, export a font, and test it in InDesign. In the afternoon, we will add more letters to the font, space them, optimise them for the screen, but also add diacritics, and produce compound glyphs. At the end of the day, you will have a pretty good start for your first font.
