FontForge looks like it might be a decent open-source font editor. Has anyone tried it? A free software package that performed comparably to FontLab would be awesome.
Hrant Papazian is teaching an Introduction to Typeface Design class at Art Center in Pasadena. It looks like a great crash course in type design for only $200 (at a very respected school, no less). I was thinking about it myself, since it’s about 2 blocks from my job, but this working stiff can’t make 4-7pm classes.
That’s it for today, I’m off to opening day at Dodger Stadium!
