Math, Logic, Design? with Just van Rossum, Type@Cooper

I could know different types of open sources for designers to design typefaces and animation through watching videos. I am really interested in the various shapes of typefaces looping animation. I also would like to use a draw bot to create a short GIF to post on my tumblr. Anyway, I looked for a different open-source style except for what he introduced.

The first open-source is ‘Inkscape’ which is much like Adobe Illustrator and Corel Draw. People can use it for free. One of the most significant advantages of this program is that it supports diverse types of file formats. As he mentioned of the draw bot, this program only supports GIF format, which files must be small. However, Inkscape can make various file formats, so it is helpful for me to post high-quality graphics on my website.

The second open source is ‘ Blender’, a 3D drawing creation software. I really like to draw 3D drawings, so it is really effective program for me to express my drawing, which looks realistic. I can use various brush tools to draw what I want. I am concerned about using it because some designers think it’s complex at first.

The third open source is ‘ font forge’, a font editor. It is light and can make your type, true type, and postscript design smooth. I am really like to design fonts, so it is also useful for me to create my creative font.

I am a little bit difficult to type code to design 2D and 3D animation. Therefore, I searched for more drawing types of opensource. I think these programs can be accessible for people with difficulties like me to design graphic design.
