Contextual alternates: video!

February 11th, 2009 by Noam Berg

Folks seem to like it when I show videos of my Fontlab work, and who am I to deny the people their entertainment? I’ve been working on contextual alternates for the rough draft of Christoffel. After the break here is some video documentation of the process. Get some popcorn and enjoy!

    hey this is really neat. you should keep posting videos like this, it’s fantastic for non-typographers to get a glimpse into the details of the process.

    Micah, I’m glad you enjoyed the vids! I just put them through some user-testing with my thesis class. I’m gonna keep playing with the format, trying to find a happy medium between some of the early time-lapsed stuff I’ve done and these full-on style tutorials. My testers got pretty bored after two minutes…hell, even I get bored watching the whole things. They’re gonna get snappier in the future, and rest assured I’ll be doing plenty. Thanks for your encouragement, and best of luck with the League!

About the Mad Scientist Running this Show

Noam Berg is a graduate Student in the Design and Technology MFA program at Parsons School for Design in New York City. He is also the (debatably) creative force behind Exfish Studio. Noam is obsessed with old vacuum tubes, type design, computers, guitars and comic books. Noam likes Thai sweet chili sauce, hats, suits & ties, Wacom tablets, Japanese green tea (with the toasted rice), nerdy science girls, many varieties of music, SLR cameras, AnarchoJudaism, lithography and pocket watches. Noam's not a big fan of cell phones, the cool kids, ugly and over-used fonts (you know who you are!) and talking about himself in the third person. Seriously, this is really weird. I'm gonna stop doing it now.
