Crossing borders · The best of different worlds

16 September 2007

Download my TypeTech presentation for ATypI 2007 Conference in Brighton, about connecting different kinds of applications and tools. Examples shown:
InDesign as a kerning interface
automatic kerning with DTL KernMaster in a FontLab Studio workflow
AFDKO 2 as part of the font generation process
The last one is still required for using lookup types which were unsupported in earlier versions of the AFDKO – on which current versions of font editors still rely. With brief sketches of how I implement automatic uppercase spacing and punctuation spacing. (Will be turned into font production notes later.)
For comments or questions, please send me an email!
For the FontLab Studio to DTL KernMaster part, also see this earlier note and download the Plug In KernMaster script set which includes a detailed manual.
Download an earlier presentation overview.
Download DTL's program of the TypeTech FontMaster track.

ATypI 2007 Conference in Brighton

The ATypI 2007 Conference in Brighton (like TypoTechnica in Frankfurt earlier this year and last year's ATypI 2006 Conference in Lisbon) was real fun: wonderful place, beautiful weather, nice people, great ideas!
