Monika Bartels

Monika Bartels has been working as a font technology specialist for 18 years. Having started out in FontShop Germany’s technical support and corporate font departments, she founded FontWerk in 2005. FontWerk offers a variety of technological services on fonts including OpenType feature programming for non-Latin scripts, Python programming, font production etc. A large part of her every-day work consists of TrueType hinting for a perfect screen display of fonts. Most of her hinting projects are for web usage, but she also hints for less sophisticated screen environments like car displays.
