Make your first font with Glyphs: In this fun introductory workshop, will draw a handful of letters, learn the basics of shaping with Bézier curves. We will export and test our font. In the last part of the workshop, we will expand our design into a variable font and make it animate in a web browser! No prior knowledge of type design required.
How are sovereignty and typography related? And what role does self-determination play? This workshop is a walk-through of what I didn't know that I wish I knew when I was getting started as an indigenous designer. Part workshop, part forum, all my relations.
Take an in-depth look at the processes of supporting indigenous writing systems in digital media, from the encoding of characters and building of fonts to the development of keyboards and online resources for language communities. John Hudson explains the Unicode paradigm for text encoding and the choices facing type designers making fonts for indigenous languages. Neil Patel discusses the process of getting scripts supported in Unicode, from character encoding proposals to standardization of locale data such as alphabet ordering for particular languages, as well as development and distribution of keyboard software. Finally, Bridget Chase presents a case study of building online language resources: the work of the First Peoples’ Cultural Council’s FirstVoices project.
Join The People’s Graphic Design Archive for an adding session of Native North American design items to this crowd-sourced archive! Bring your design treasures and we will upload and add context as a group. Educator and designer, Leo Vicenti will be on hand to offer his expertise in Native design.
A community meeting in zoom to expand the history of Native North American Design.
