title Tipografia Multidimensional [Multidimensional Typography]

summary This work intends to outline some ways of how typography has been presented, taking into consideration the different configurations type designs may contemporarily take on. In other words, through various approaches and usages, the font drawings are converted into sculptures, paintings, among other things. For this study, the aim is to analyze the path of historical-conceptual contextualization of typography, as well as some of its implications, based on Rosalind Krauss' study on the expanded field.

title Metafont, Metamathematics, and Metaphysics
source 23, [38] p. : ill. Bloomington: Computer Science Department, Indiana University, december, 1982. Technical report No. 136. includes bibliography.--- Comments on Donald Knuth's Article 'The Concept of a Meta-Font.' --- See also Donald Knuth's 'The Concept of a Meta-Font,' Visible Language, (Winter 1982), vol. XVI, no. 1, pp. 3-27
summary It is argued that readers are likely to carry away from Donald Knuth's article 'The Concept of a Meta-Font' a falsely optimistic view of the extent to which the design of typefaces and letterforms can be mechanized through an approach depending on describing letterforms by specifying the settings of a large number of parameters. Through a comparison to mathematical logic, it is argued that no such set of parameters can capture the essence of any semantic category. Some different ways of thinking about the problem of the 'spirit' residing behind any letterform are suggested, connecting to current research issues in the field of artificial intelligence

title The Concept of a Meta-Font
source Visible Language. Winter, 1982. vol. XVI: pp. 3-27 : ill. includes bibliography
summary A single drawing of a single letter reveals only a small part of what was in the designer's mind when that letter was drawn. But when precise instructions are given about how to make such a drawing, the intelligence of that letter can be captured in a way that permits us to obtain an infinite variety of related letters from the same specification. Instead of merely describing a single letter, such instructions explain how that letter would change its shape if other parameters of the design were changed. Thus an entire font of letters and other symbols can be specified so that each character adapts itself to varying conditions in an appropriate way. Initial experiments with a precise language for pen motions suggest strongly that the font designer of the future should not simply design isolated alphabets; the challenge will be to explain exactly how each design should adapt itself gracefully to a wide range of changes in the specification. This paper gives examples of a meta-font and explains the changeable parameters in its design

title Design Gráfico e planejamento urbano no desenvolvimento de um software de elaboração de placas de sinalização e nome de rua [Graphic Design and Urban Planning in a Software Development of Signs and Street Names]
source SIGraDi 2009 - Proceedings of the 13th Congress of the Iberoamerican Society of Digital Graphics, Sao Paulo, Brazil, November 16-18, 2009
summary This article presents, starting from data collection applied to graphical design, the development of GERAPLACA software which helps designers to create signaling plates and street plates of standardized form with respect to the choice of font, layout, production comments, finishing and installation, in order to avoid the subjectivism that favors the inefficiency of furniture. This software allows the integration of urban planning and graphic design, has low production costs , unifies the languages among professionals from diverse backgrounds who work with urban furniture. The methology for the creation of plates and the results obtained with the software are presented below.
