TypeAdviser: a type design aiding-tool



The number of people who design typefaces has drastically increased in the last twenty years. However, not all typefaces work as they should, i.e., as a group of characters with shared attributes. We present a tool for helping type designers in their creative process, which explores the anatomic relations among characters of a typeface. Having computer-aided design as a goal, our tool helps in the early stages of designing a typeface by using semi-automatic letter-part sharing and allowing the users to compare their design with existing typefaces.
