Toshi Omagari – Making Noto Sans Tibetan

Toshi Omagari (Tokyo) from Monotype speaks about the Noto Sans typeface family which includes nearly 100 writing systems such as Mongolian, Phags-Pa, Lepcha and Tibetan – these four being his contributions to this type family.

Each of these writing systems has it‘s very specific characteristics which confronted him with unexpected challenges he sometimes had to solve with unconventional measures.

This  approach is based on his craft, his in-depth understanding of the field, and last but not least a good portion of humour. Lots of information and lots of laughing!
