Color Font Workshop at Design Matters 2021 ↗
Design Matters is Copenhagen-based conference on digital design – made for designers, by designers. It is a place to gather together, share ideas, and discuss experiences. Design Matters involves a knowledgeable community of creative and curious minds who share the same drive and passion for digital design, technology, art, and society.
Since 2015, Design Matters has been sharing stories about new movements in design, giving inspiration to designers from all over the world, growing each year and reaching 1000+ participants in 2019. In January 2020, Design Matters landed in Tokyo for the first time with a two-day event. In September 2020, it went hybrid, with an online and in-person event.
And… Ulrike Rausch (of LiebeFonts fame) will be hosting a Color Fonts Workshop! Participants receive an extended trial license and can purchase their own full license at a discount.
Workshop: Create you own vector color font
29 September 2021, 13:00 CET
In this session, Ulrike will introduce you to the font editor Glyphs and walk you through the process of adding color layers, drawing your letter shapes, and exporting your font. You don’t need to have any previous experience in type design, but you will have a better time if you have some experience drawing Bézier vectors (e.g., with Adobe apps such as Illustrator, InDesign, Photoshop).
If you are a letter lover and passionate about colors, this hands-on workshop is for you!
Included for conference attendees; conference tickets available starting at DKK 2000.
Bring your MacBook with Glyphs 3 preinstalled. No prior knowledge of type design required.
