Over a period of time various physical aspects of the Roman script have been explored extensively through several applications and computer mediated tools. This eventually resulted in a number of the typefaces being designed for the roman script, as compared to any other scripts (Devanagari script). And they are available for printing.
This project involves designing a suitable tool for people to design Devanagari fonts starting with letters followed by a process and grid pattern.
The question in my mind was ‘How can I create a software tool to facilitate the process of Devanagari font design’, so I began the journey of “Creating a Digital Tool for Designing Devanagari Font ”. The project aims at creating computer mediated tool that will help designers to design Devanagari fonts with the help of an interface. A comprehensive set of interactive tools are available for font design. With the minimal interaction the designer can describe his forms, edit them, visualize them singly or in combination and then create a full letterforms for use.
