Workshop: Color Fonts

with Rainer Scheichelbauer (May 27–28)


In this two-day workshop, you will learn about all major color font formats and how they are implemented in Glyphs:

– layered fonts

…their potentials and their limits, how to prepare a design for multiple formats, and which formats work in which environment. Recommended reading: the [color font tutorials on the Glyphs website](https://glyphsapp.com/learn) (not mandatory, but you’ll get more out of the workshop if you prepare).
