Serebro Nabora 2016, Moscow

  • Event
  • Moscow, Russia

Glyphs is happy to be a sponsor at the Serebro Nabora Type Conference in Moscow. What’s more, Glyphs team member Rainer Erich Scheichelbauer is holding two full-day workshops.

Glyphs Introductory Workshop

When?

Friday, 30 September 2016
10.30–17.00 (incl. lunch break)

Who?

Rainer Erich Scheichelbauer

Prerequisites

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.

Glyphs Pro Workshop

When?

Monday, 3 October 2016
10.30–17.00 (incl. lunch break)

Who?

Rainer Erich Scheichelbauer

Prerequisites
  • Prior experience in type design required (the words OpenType and Multiple Master should not sound foreign to you) or the introductory workshop
  • Bring your MacBook (OS X 10.9.5 or later)
  • Download and install the Glyphs trial
  • Make sure you know your Admin password, because we will make some installations

We will start with a monoline (open paths) design in Glyphs, and generate an OpenType font from it. By adding glyph variations, we will make Glyphs auto-generate OpenType features for us. We will expand the mono line to a single-axis Multiple Master set-up, making use of built-in features as well as third-party scripts and plugins.
