Workshop: Glyphs Secrets

6 July 2019, 9am—6pm

You will be taken through a professional variable font production workflow, with ample opportunity for questions and feedback. During part one, focus will be on drawing vectors and producing fonts in Glyphs: a very good opportunity to meet the Glyphs core team and share your suggestions, and questions about font design and production. Part two will focus on Variable Fonts and reusing shapes: Multiple Master technology, interpolation, and all the small details that truly make a difference.

Topics covered:

  • create multiple-master and variable fonts from scratch
  • prepare professional vector outlines
  • convert an existing Multiple Master setup into a Variable Font
  • reuse recurring shapes effectively
  • trace down and fix errors, avoid potential pitfalls
  • optional settings (custom parameters)
  • useful scripts and plug-ins for any workflow
  • export and test in AI and web browsers
  • animate a glyph in a web browser (the fun part!)
