Wonderful tool for type designers

Interpolated Nudge by Christian Robertson

A few months ago I discovered this utterly useful free python script that shifts control points proportionally with it’s anchor points. I can’t think of editing contours without it anymore. You can find the Interpolated Nudge script *here*.

“The idea is pretty simple. Wouldn’t it be nice to move a node while keeping the tension in the curve? When tweeking, bolding and making fonts wider, I prefer to use the keyboard to ‘nudge’ the points around. It makes it easy to keep track of measurements, to make sure that the new stroke weight/character widths are consistent.” – Christian Robertson

Museo Sans numbers

After reading Tal Leming’s fraction fever I decided to give this a go. I’ve long wanted to script a decent fraction feature, but couldn’t get it right. This is working perfectly (for now … I’ve only tested it in Indesign CS2 on Tiger). Click on the images to see it animated.

Still in progress … but Museo Sans will end up with nominators, denominators, superiors, inferiors, oldstyle figures (proportional & tabular) and lining figures (proportional & tabular).

License update II

[UPDATE – May 12th 2009]

You may use this font for Font-Face embedding, but only if you put a link to on your page and/or put this notice /* A font by Jos Buivenga (exljbris) -> */ in your CSS file as near as possible to the piece of code that declares the Font-Face embedding of this font.


This regards all my free fonts. Also the free weights of Museo and Museo Sans!

A few day’s ago I w.w.w.andered and came across some fonts that were claiming to tackle dyslexia. I’m not going to mention them, but I was just a little bit horrified. I would like to get more information from (font)designers –or people with that disability– to see if I can humbly make a difference.
