Advanced Font Nerdery topics?

We will go through an efficient font production workflow for Glyphs. Get to know the best insider tips for setting up your font file, testing your work inside and outside of the app, and for managing paths, components, interpolation, PS hinting, spacing, and kerning. In each topic, we will focus on QA: find even the smallest mistakes, no matter where they are buried in your font file, and correct them efficiently. In the course of the workshop, you will learn how to extend the app functionality with scripts and plug-ins.


Limited to 20 attendees:
– Experienced designers and font engineers who use Glyphs regularly.
– It’s in English, mais les francophones sont bienvenus puisque Rainer parle français.


Just bring your MacBook with the latest version of Glyphs 3 preinstalled, make sure you updated to the most recent beta: Glyphs > Preferences > Updates: enable Cutting Edge Versions and check for updates.
