Cantarell: Designing Typefaces Using Only Free Software

28 May 2010, 17:30 - 18:00

Dave Crossland

This talk presents the techniques and software I used and developed for creating the Cantarell font family, and looks at the future of free software type design. During the last 2 years I undertook the prestigious MA Typeface Design programme at the University of Reading, UK. The course involves two major projects, a theoretical dissertation and a practical type design. I wrote about the nexus of free software and typeface design, and used only free software to design Cantarell.
