Yves Peters

Yves Peters is a graphic designer/rock drummer/father of three who tries to be critical about typography without coming across as a snob. Yves started reviewing type in his Bald Condensed column on Typographer.org, and came to prominence as editor-in-chief for the international design and typography blog The FontFeed. After working primarily for FontShop for a decade, he has found a new home at Type Network. His talent for being able to identify most typefaces on sight is utterly useless in daily life.

Type with character(s) – reclaiming control over OpenType fonts

The introduction of OpenType fonts in 2000 offered designers a rich and sophisticated typographic repertoire. The number of typefaces that support advanced typographic features has grown exponentially over the years. And yet software applications offering typesetting capabilities still fail to provide an adequate font interface. As a result, much of their potential for both print and the web remain untapped. Yves will help you unlock that potential and elevate your typography to higher levels.
