File GlyphWiki - a Wiki-based glyph design and font production system
by Taichi Kawabata published Dec 20, 2010 last modified Aug 26, 2015 11:39 PM — filed under: , ,
By Taichi Kawabata and Kamichi Koichi. Today, more than 75,000 CJK Unified/Compatibility Ideographs have been encoded in Unicode. However, there are many more such characters that have yet to be unencoded, either because they have simply not been standardized (or submitted for standardization), or because they exhibit sometimes subtle or minor glyph-design differences and are thus unified with an existing character. There is a strong demand to be able to distinguish these subtle or minor design differences. GlyphWiki, a Wiki-based collaborative glyph design system, is specifically architected to satisfy such needs. GlyphWiki enables anyone to design his/her own glyph, name it, and publish it as a TrueType font or SVG file. GlyphWiki has been used to develop the world's first font that includes glyphs for all CJK Unified/Compatibility Ideographs. This presentation will demonstrate the benefits of GlyphWiki, how it can be used to manage a large number of glyphs, and how to turn them into a fully-functional OpenType font. The accompanying paper describes GlyphWiki's architecture in detail, to include its glyph naming system, and how the features in the resulting OpenType font correspond to the Wiki-based naming schemes. From the 2012 ATypI conference in Hong Kong.

File object code And we forgot about the time: Flow, type and graphic design
by Chris Ro published Dec 20, 2010 last modified Aug 26, 2015 11:39 PM — filed under: , , ,
The presentation will discuss the phenomenon of ‘flow’ originally conceived and coined by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi and its relationship to graphic design and typography. ‘Flow’ is a phenomenon often experienced in great quantity by musicians, artists and athletes. It is a moment of absolute concentration where the world, distractions and time all disappear in an unfiltered moment of focused activity. Some call it entering the zone or getting lost in the moment. The Korean word for this is ‘mohrib’ or ‘samae’. The Hindu word for this is ‘Samadhi’. It is a multi-cultural phenomenon and one that Csizkentmihalyi has found to lead to greater amounts of happiness and satisfaction. In generations past, ‘flow’ could similarly be heavily linked to the practice of design. Design was an all engrossing moment of ‘flow’ and it was often because of this state that some designers chose to be designers in the first place. But in recent years, the experience of ‘flow’ in the design process has decreased significantly. There are many factors that have contributed to this. The heavier use of computers and technology are a large part of this. The current design industry system and model are a part of this as well. This project examines this relationship between design and ‘flow’ and has done so with experiments both in form and typography, surveys and coursework within an academic setting. This presentation will tell the story of some of these investigations and take a closer look at this once strong but now diminishing relationship.
