Description

WORKSHOP
Introduction to type design with Glyphs: Learn how to sketch and digitize letters, derive more letter shapes from existing ones, add diacritics, test your font in Adobe or Mac apps, add OpenType features and effects.

Get your first font started! Continue at home and at your own pace with handouts you will receive at the workshop. Work in Glyphs with a special extended trial license and/or buy your own license at a discount.


BIOGRAPHY
Rainer Erich Scheichelbauer was born in Vienna and studied photography, philosophy, and Dutch. Today, he creates and produces typefaces, teaches type design, gives type design workshops, translates Dutch books on typography into German, and writes articles and Python scripts. Rainer joined the Glyphs team in 2012 and has been writing tutorials and the handbook. A few years ago he started his type service office “Schriftlabor” with three other designers in Vienna.
