Greek and Cyrillic Extension to Latin Type Families
10 Thursdays, February 6 to April 9, 6:30 PM–9:30 PM
Students expand the character set of their Latin typeface families created in the Type@Cooper program or independently by adding language support for Greek and Cyrillic. Commonatlities as well as differences between the individual scripts will be examined carefully and students will learn to draw characters that will fit the existing typeface while doing justice to the expectations of different writing systems, languages and cultures. Students may work in the font editor of their choice, but instruction will be given using Robofont.
- Various sizes of black markers
- white out pen
- sketching paper
