Taking handwriting fonts to the next level – with color font technology

Numerous ligatures and alternative letterforms combined with sofisticated OpenType programming add just the right analog touch to handwriting-style fonts. Yet, Ulrike was challenged to find ways to reproduce handwritten messages even more realistically.

With her latest font release LiebeHeide, she demonstrates how color font technology can authentically reproduce the writing of a ballpoint pen–hardly being recognizable as a digital product anymore.
