Creating a Digital Tool for Designing Devanagari Font
Aksharchitra : 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.
A user community consisting of designers, type designers or artists. This abstraction enables one to bring new innovative and artistic letterforms in a hand designed quality.
