Automatic Font Generation

Date: 2009〜

In this project, our objective is to make a process of font design easy for everyone. Users are asked to draw outlines of some of characters (one or more) to specify their design. Our system takes the outlines as examples and use to create the rest of characters of the entire font automatically. This is our work in progress.

1) Font Model

Designing a digital font requires not only artistic but also technical skills. However, it is time-consuming and requires professional skills to create a nice font with consistency looks and plausible details. We present a font model that blends structures and outlines of template fonts individually, yet maintains the original style.

2) Automatic Generation

We also present an algorithm to automatically generate font by blending the template fonts. It takes the desired outline of one character as an input and infer blending weights.
