Participants will proceed with the development of a family based on the typefaces they have designed during the first and second terms. Additional weights or versions from different genres may be developed. Methods will be presented for pursuing the refinement and integration of the different styles in the family. Topics will include extensions to character sets including OpenType features such as small capitals and different styles of figures. Strategies for organizing the work flow used in establishing kerning tables and proofing them will be covered.
