Taking handwriting fonts to the next level – with color font technology

Numerous ligatures and alternative letterforms combined with sofisticated OpenType programming add just the right analog touch to handwriting-style fonts.
Yet, type designer Ulrike Rausch was challenged to find ways to reproduce handwritten messages even more realistically.
With her latest font release LiebeHeide, she demonstrates how color font technology can authentically reproduce the writing of a ballpoint pen–hardly being recognizable as a digital product anymore.

Ulrike held this talk at ATypI conference in October 2020 (https://www.atypi.org/conferences/all-over-2020).

Talk at TYPO Berlin, International Design Conference

Ulrike’s talk topic:
Most people expect type designer Ulrike Rausch is sitting down with pen and paper to design her fonts. But actually, getting from the first drawings to a working font is not a purely analog process but rather a pretty geeky software endeavor.
In her talk, Ulrike shows how she designs typefaces and how she builds fonts. Ulrike will also demonstrate how nerdy OpenType programming adds just the right analog touch to her handwriting style.

Boon and Bane of OpenType Features

TYPO Labs conference aims to connect font engineers and practitioners with OS developers, CSS experts and academics.

Ulrike’s talk topic:
OpenType features are awesome! They add that little something that makes the difference and enable fonts to really shine.
Yet, these badass superpowers are often restrained due to missing support and unpleasant applicability.
In her talk Ulrike will share advanced tips and tricks on how to get the most out of the OpenType feature syntax and demonstrates what to bear in mind when it comes to the implementation within layout software.

You Say Cute, I Say Code!

Because the fonts Ulrike Rausch designs look handmade, many people picture her working with pen and paper all day. But no! The path from the first sketches to a fully functioning font is not a purely analog process, it’s rather a pretty geeky software endeavor.
In her talk, Ulrike shows how she designs typefaces and how she builds fonts. Ulrike will also demonstrate how nerdy OpenType programming adds just the right analog touch to her handwriting style. You will learn how to use pro fonts like a pro—no matter if you use layout software like Adobe InDesign or a standard word processor like Microsoft Word.
