Jimmy (Der Fontmeister) raves:
Yesterday morning we had a spectacular webinar with David Bergsland (Author of Practical Font Design – link: http://www.fontlab.com/typographic-resources/font-typography-books/)
I gotta say, after many years of handling font tech questions, I’ve never seen anything like what Dave does. I am grateful to the many genius designers I’ve learned from but nobody has ever blown my mind like this guy did.
He nonchalantly shared some tips about using the font blue zones and font mask to overlay his parts library on top of the glyphs as he develops them. Suddenly, problems stand out like a sore thumb! Hinting and optical illusion issues are avoided, etc. etc. I COULD go on –suffice it to say the audience gave him a standing ovation via the chat window!!!
This is a MUST SEE… In case you missed it here’s the registration link to watch the recorded version:
