With a group of 20 courageous participants and the help of open type activists Dave Crossland, Alexandre Prokoudine and Nicolas Spalinger we are using Inkscape, Gimp and FontForge to produce a typeface in a day. We have named it W Drogę (On Our Way, En Route in Polish) and it should be available for download by the end of the day tomorrow soon!

    hey! thank you very much for the workshop, I regret I had to leave earlier.
    I was a nice time and I’ve learnt pretty much about how a font is digitalized.
    Hope you have a good time in Wrocław!
    Best wishes.
