If you’re lazy like we are, inter­po­la­tion seems like a fan­tas­tic oppor­tu­nity to cre­ate fonts in a split sec­ond. Espe­cially extrap­o­la­tion looks like the option to cre­ate fonts out of noth­ing – but beware of the temp­ta­tions of lazi­ness: fonts are likely to look weird after extrap­o­la­tion. But there lies a new chance, extrap­o­la­tion might take you to new designs. This hap­pened to Ste­fan Claudius when he was work­ing on a new Super­fam­ily. He thought things were clear, but it turned out they weren’t. So he wrote an arti­cle about his expe­ri­ences. Read it in the new Slanted Issue #19.
