Passing on the FDK Workshops Torch

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.

AFDKO Workshops

Next month I will be in Europe for two weeks, first in Reading, England, and then in The Hague, Netherlands. I will be giving a workshop that covers the various font development and testing tools we provide in the AFDKO*, to both the students of the MA in Typeface Design from the University of Reading, and the students of the Type & Media MA from The Royal Academy of Arts.
