Working on Questa

Martin Majoor and I had a great day today working on Questa. We’re still in the middle of determining and testing lowercase italic shapes for the text version. Questa will come in three variations: text, display and sans (each in regular, italic, bold and bold italic).

Calluna: first italic impressions

I’ve started working on the italics of Calluna. These are just first impressions … so everything is subject to change at the moment and of course spacing is very very rough.

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).
