The type designers from Underware think these are interesting times for type designers. They wonder how variable fonts can be. They wonder what it means that their fonts will outlive them. They wonder how many dimensions a font can have. They wonder what this all means for type designers now, and in the future. And meanwhile they steadily continue to make new typefaces for their independent type foundry at www.underware.nl
In type technology, wonders never cease. But then why do we accept digital type to be as primitive as it is? Why don’t we just make a lettering ourselves, instead of pressing keys? Why does a good interface for new technologies still lack? Why does type have so many limitations, when “everything is possible”? Questions, questions.
