OpenType features for Script Typefaces

When Wed 17 Sep 1155
Where
What
Who Jim Wasco

Jim Wasco, senior type designer at Monotype, will discuss how OpenType features can make script typefaces function like real handwriting. He will discuss two projects, Segoe Script for Microsoft, and Elegy, Wasco’s award winning typeface based on the original ITC logo designed by Ed Benguiat and Tom Carnase in 1970. Segoe Script and Elegy use OpenType contextual alternate GSUB features similar to Arabic scripts that make setting type with these fonts look like convincing handwritten scripts.
