Kerning with Bézier curve Toshi Omagari ATypI 2016 • Warsaw, Poland NiNA

In digital type design, the process of kerning has not changed much after the introduction of class kerning, and most designers kern the same way with small variations. Although the idea of the method based on explicitly drawn space has existed since the early days, it has seen limited adoption such as in Microsoft’s Cambria Math. This presentation will demonstrate BubbleKern, a new kerning tool for type design that uses Bézier curve, and propose the future of kerning in a next font format.
