Font and keyboard development
Fonts are the face of a publication. Many publishers realise this and consider fonts as a part of their publications brand. While it might not be apparent to an average reader, not all Times Roman font are same. There are hundreds of version, each crafted to address the specific requirement of its creator.
Summit has been creating, designing and digitising, fonts for almost two decades. While much of the work is for its in-house product Indica, many demanding publishers get their fonts customised from Summit. Summit’s font work are recognised for its quality and consistency. In the absence of a standard keyboard layout many of the non-Roman languages enjoyed the freedom of having to choose from multiple keyboard layouts. Each created by its legacy typewriter or typesetting manufacturer, each learning and improvising on previous work, each adapting for new technology without the baggage of any inefficient or old standard. As a result today different users are trained in different keyboard layouts.
Summit has been helping users to adapt and retain their older keyboard layouts when they seek to migrate to newer technologies. Be it Windows, Macintosh or Linux; of for that matter be it web or mobile, Summit has been offering its customers facility to maintain consistency over technology or devices.
