Last week in London and Brussels

Tags: Design

I spent the first part of last week in a small room in London with Andrea Cimitan, Daniel Foré and Otto Greenslade working on the amazing Murrine theme engine and the Ambiance (and Radiance) themes.

In a few days we accomplished quite a lot: a new expander style, a new handle style, new radio and check button styles , focused and default button theme states, etc. More on this in the near future.

Thursday evening Otto, Daniel and myself travelled to Brussels to attend the Libre Graphic Meeting. I really enjoyed myself and learned quite a lot including; best practices in font design, releasing and maintaining open fonts, font design and features for African languages, device specific colour management, and diffusion curves (amazing stuff).
