Since 2008, and almost uninterruptedly, I have been visiting two well-known type design schools every spring, to deliver a 3-to-4-day workshop on font production and the Adobe Font Development Kit for OpenType (AFDKO)*. Today, I would like to announce that my colleague Frank Grießhammer is taking over that responsibility starting this year.
Frank is a graduate of KABK’s Type and Media program, he has recently celebrated his third anniversary at Adobe, and was one of the attendees of the workshop back in 2010. He always likes to point out that his interest in regular expressions (a.k.a. GREP or regexp) was sparked by a tiny example I mentioned at the workshop. I would never have imagined that.
He is a very talented type designer and programmer, and I know he is well qualified to answer any technical and design questions that the students will have. I have full confidence that Frank will do well and that the FDK workshops will continue to prosper with him at the helm.
