Event ISType 2017 • Variation
by Onur Yazıcıgil published Apr 03, 2017 last modified Apr 03, 2017 07:51 AM — filed under: , , , , ,
Typefaces behave differently in various conditions, and these circumstances provoke a wide spectrum of variation in their appearance and function. The inherent nature of “letter–making” lies in the subtleties of “form-making,” an exploratory creative process that generates new shapes with the purpose of forming a coherent system. We might then ask how different circumstances—of all sorts and scales—inspire variations to take shape in the production of typefaces.

File Kazuraki: under the hood
by Ken Lunde published Dec 20, 2010 last modified Aug 26, 2015 11:39 PM — filed under: ,
By Ken Lunde. Conventional CJK fonts are designed on the principle that each of their thousands (or tens of thousands) of glyphs occupies a fixed design space, typically a square, but sometimes a rectangle. Kazuraki, which was inspired by the handwriting of the famous 12th century Japanese artist, writer, and poet, Fujiwara no Teika, and designed by Adobe's Senior Type Designer, Ryoko Nishizuka, breaks this assumption. Designing the glyphs for fully-proportional CJK fonts, along with determining their horizontal and vertical metrics, presents several challenges. Turning this raw data into a fully-functional OpenType/CFF font requires special techniques to ensure that it behaves as expected in modern applications. This effort includes techniques for making the proportional metrics the default for both writing directions, horizontal and vertical, along with the proper handling of special glyphs, such as the hiragana ligatures that are intended to be used only for vertical writing. This presentation focuses on the technical hurdles that were overcome so that Kazuraki, with its unique typeface-design characteristics, could be implemented as a fully-functional OpenType/CFF font. Also covered is the broad extent to which the techniques used to design and implement Kazuraki are fully applicable to other CJK fonts besides Japanese. This presentation is intended to serve as a continuation of the "Kazuraki: Its Art & Design" presentation. From the 2012 ATypI conference in Hong Kong
