If you’re still looking for design or construction constraints, take a look at TypeCooker. It just randomly outputs a bunch of parameters. It can also be a fun lettering exercise to sketch based on the output.

  4. The New FF Chartwell

    At long last, the new FF Chartwell has been released! Four new styles of graphs now accompany the family. The fonts have been released through the FontFont foundry; you may have noticed the FF prefixed to the name. It is a great honor to have worked with their awesome and experienced team.

    The transition to FontFont brings a new EULA. The biggest change is that webfont licenses are no longer available. All previous licenses are still valid, and support will continue to be provided. You can still access the old documentation here

    There are no immediate plans to release the new designs as webfonts, but that could change depending on demand or more elegant solutions. If you’d like to see webfonts come back, make sure to let FontFont know. 

    The new fonts also feature a revised alphabet and beefed up character set for wider language support. Previous users should also note that the charts are now activated by Stylistic Slternates and Stylistic Set 1, rather than the ligature feature.

  5. Interpolated Nudge for RoboFont

    Update: Jackson Cavanaugh(Okay Type) brought this into his Ted-Nudget script. With that, you can access the nudge by using the normal arrow keys. The Script

    Also, Gustavo Ferreira(Hipertipo) added a palette/dialog box, if that’s more your style of working. The Script | Overview Video.

    A few years ago Christian Robertson of Betatype created the awesome Interpolated Nudge script for FontLab. Below is my adaptation of that script for RoboFont. 

    To install:
    1. Download the files.
    2. Place unzipped files into your scripts RoboFont scripts folder. You can change the default scripts folder in the preferences menu. 

    3. Select your nodes and call the script.

    Or assign Hot Keys. Note that RoboFont automatically assigns ‘control command’ to the beginning of your hot keys.
     

    For more details on the script visit Christian’s site.

  6. Preview of Chartwell Radar

    Another new design for the upcoming polar collection. I’m also throwing around the possibility of including the grid in the font, and adding it to other designs where appropriate. It’s activated as a separate parameter, and includes different threshold options.
