Royal Academy of Art’s Type Blog 


A listing with (download) links of available tools for type design and font production categorized per operating system. Some of the tools can be downloaded directly from this site. Some of them are free, including full functional Open Source applications and Lite, i.e. partly restricted commercial ones. Also there are academic licenses available of some of the listed tools.
All fonttools are briefly described. This information will be updated regularly, partly to answer questions raised by the LS students. Also the students themselves create manuals as a result of following one of the two 1001 ways to digitize type modules and these are published here too. Like all information provided here, these manuals are not static and will be enhanced and extended by future students.
