New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
Can someone please read the Summary and Portfolio sections below and comment if they make any sense at all? This is for my friend's resume, she will be looking for freelance/contract font development projects.
(Hopefully I'm going to catch some attention before everyone sits down in a Dublin pub!)
15 years of experience in font production. Implemented all stages of font production from digitization to font file generation.
Produced bitmap, PostScript Type 1, TrueType, OpenType fonts. Optimized fonts for b&w, grayscale and ClearType display anti-aliasing environments. Worked on extended Latin, Cyrillic and Arabic scripts. Proficient Fontlab user.
Over 3000 fonts processed, major projects include:
1) Bespoke handwriting fonts production
Designed development process and supervised a team of 6 font engineers. Over 1000 individual fonts were produced over the course of 5 years. In addition to bespoke non-public fonts, several commercial fonts were produced as a part of this project: Birch, Epsilon, Irina, Kremlin, Nina, Tatiana.
For these fonts I developed Latin script glyphs based on original handwriting samples, Cyrillic glyphs were further designed by Tagir Safaev. Samples of these fonts can be found at: http://www.paratype.com/pstore/
