Ryoko Nishizuka:
Typeface Design for East Asia

In recent years, there has been a lot of innovation in font-related technology, not only in fonts, but also in the applications that create them, the applications that use them, and the environments that display them. In the midst of this, we have released a variable font with CJK support. We have also created fonts with color glyphs. In my presentation, I would like to show examples from my work of how these technologies can add value to fonts for East Asia.

This talk is scheduled to take place online, , 2021, at in your current time zone (/UTC), as part of the main Typographics conference. Conference registration is available on a pay-what-you-can basis.
