Taisei Yoshida joined Adobe’s Japanese Typography team, based in their office in Tokyo, Japan, in 2018. As an Assistant Designer, he has been involved in several recent typeface design projects, such as Source Han (Pan-CJK) and Ten Mincho, under the supervision of Ryoko Nishizuka. Taisei graduated from the Department of Science of Design, Musashino Art University. While a student, he also learned typeface design at Kinichi Imada’s typeKIDS school, and at Osamu Torinoumi’s Moji-juku school. As his graduation work, he used the font design and production app named Glyphs to create Hakurei, a Mincho-style typeface. This typeface is based on his research into Japanese typeface design through the use of stroke-like elements. With his friends, he formed a group for lettering design named Sho Times.
At this workshop you will learn processes, tips, and tricks for adding an SVG table to an OpenType font using data exported from Illustrator. The processes involve some simple command-line operations that are executed in the macOS Terminal app.
