More info on the workshop

TrueType: the final frontier. You feel safe with PostScript outlines, but still shy away from things like TT Hinting? This workshop shows how to turn your designs into pristine TTFs with Glyphs, so you can lightly, regularly and boldly go where you have not gone before.

Plus: what you need to know about the status quo of Variable Font production in Glyphs, as well as useful tips for reusing shapes with dynamic corner and smart components. Bring your fonts! (Sample files available.)
