Rod Sheeter

Rod Sheeter came to fonts by accident, having been rudely disabused of the notion that text was a “solved problem.” Five years later, it’s still not solved :) As first an individual contributor and now tech lead and manager at Google Fonts, Sheeter helped nudge along WOFF2 and unicode-range (https://developers.googleblog.com/2015/02/smaller-fonts-with-woff-20-and-unicode.html), bring the Google Fonts collection to Android (https://medium.com/google-design/the-android-developers-guide-to-better-typography-97e11bb0e261), and ship high-performance serving for very large fonts such as those used for Chinese, Japanese, and Korean. Today, he works on the nascent progressive-font-enrichment standard and on delivering variable fonts at scale. ロッド・シーターはテキスト処理が「すでに解決済みの問題」という誤解を胸に、フォント業界に偶然に飛び込んだ。5年経った今、相変わらずテキスト処理は問題が山積みだ :) もともとグーグルフォントには個人の貢献者として携わっていたが、現在は技術主任と管理人となり、WOFF2とUnicode範囲自動識別を推進し(https://developers.googleblog.com/2015/02/smaller-fonts-with-woff-20-and-unicode.html)、グーグルフォントのアンドロイド対応を実装し(https://medium.com/google-design/the-android-developers-guide-to-better-typography-97e11bb0e261)、日中韓系フォント等の大きなサイズのフォントの高速な供給システムを実現した。現在ではまだ萌芽期にある漸進的フォント補完技術とバリアブルフォントの大規模な実装に取り組んでいる。
