Workshop: Ligatures

TYPO Berlin 2016 Beyond Design | Friday, 13 May | 1:00 pm | Nest | English

Some say that ligatures are overrated and unnecessary, this workshop will prove those people wrong. :) Ligatures, as well as alternate characters/glyphs have never been more popular. With all the efforts for better Open Type Features controls, it is just a question of time, when the ligatures will become a must have. Their design will give a special touch to your typeface – a glimmer of uniqueness. Designing them requires a sharp eye, pinch of creativity and will provide you a lot of fun.

The workshop will go through the history of ligature development covering uppercase/lowercase and logic behind their design. Using paper and pen, laptop, we will design a few basic ligatures that will be coded in the font.
