Sažetak

OpenType format fontova nudi proširene mogućnosti manipulacije slovnim znakovima. Unutar istog fonta jedan slovni znak može imati više varijacija. Takve varijacije slovnih znakova su posebno zanimljive kod rukopisnih rezova, jer ispisani tekst čine prirodnijim. Programskim kodovima automatiziraju se izmjene oblika slovnih znakova unutar fonta. Ovaj rad obuhvaća razradu programibilnih svojstava OpenType fontova, defi nirajući alternativna rješenja pojedinog slovnog znaka. Uvođenjem takvih svojstava otvara se novo područje u edukaciji o izradi digitalnih rukopisnih pismovnih rezova. Time želimo usmjeriti studente prema razvijanju kreativnih rješenja vlastitih fontova. Cilj rada je stvoriti temelje za kvalitetan edukacijski program koji će obuhvatiti sve glavne prednosti koje nude OpenType fontovi.

Abstract

OpenType font format off ers extended possibilities of glyph manipulation. One letter character in a typeface can assume various forms. Th ese variations of characters are especially interesting in handwritten fonts because when applied on text they seem more natural. By programming codes we can automate the changes of glyph variations inside the font. Th is paper covers the process of programming OpenType features and defi ning the alternative solutions of one letter character. By introducing these features, a new fi eld in education of digital typefaces unfolds. Our wish is to direct students towards developing their own creative solutions of variable fonts. Th e goal of this paper is to make foundation for quality educational program that comprises all major advantages that OpenType font features offer.

Key words: OpenType font, character / glyph, ligature, kerning

Patrik Ervells latest collection is ironically titled “Software”ADIDAS ORIGINALS TUBULAR SHADOW. In the notes from the presentation, Ervell says he was interested in developing tension between nostalgia and sci-fi,NIKE ZOOM WINFLO 3 and even included 90s cyberpunk amongst his influences. Ervell developed this point of view by creating an imaginary software company called Idegen software systems. He then re-appropriated the company’AIR JORDAN XXXI MENs logo in several of the collection’s garments. Elsewhere,MBT TARIKI MEN mohair coats with oversized lapels made an appearance alongside mock neck tees,NIKE AIR JORDAN RETRO 5 police-inspired ribbed sweaters,MBT FORA GTX WOMEN flight bombers, and polyurethane leather coats. The setting was also suitably dystopian, and the resulting ambiance was something akin to if the creators of Deutschland 83 and Hackers met up and decided to create a collection… We mean that as a compliment.Yesterday afternoon,JORDAN CP3 IX MEN artist JR spent the day working on his latest collaborative piece with Daniel Arsham in Greenpoint,NIKE AIR MAX 90 Brooklyn,MBT KIMONDO GTX MEN NYC. Connecting the lines between art, architecture, dance and theater, Daniel Arsham has been known to subvert existing architectural structures in unconventional,NIKE CLASSIC CORTEZ NYLON playful ways; confusing and confounding the expectations of space and form.
