You’ve also been one of our very first Favorit Hangul testers and feedbackers. How’s that going?
A lot of time-consuming challenges have basically been solved by using Favorit Hangul. Before, we were typesetting body copy by mixing Hangul and Latin typefaces together. There were some issues with this: For instance, when using Korean and Latin typefaces, you have to make lots of detailed adjustments in the weights and sizes so that they fit together. When I read the text after we'd adjusted two fonts like this, I often felt the subtle visual interruption. Plus it took a lot of time and effort to create an InDesign style list, and moving the document was slow due to the use of many greps.
With Favorit though, it’s now possible to set up harmonious and smooth copy in both Korea and Latin. And handling the document is far easier. Now, when we’re using Gothic typefaces for body copy, Favorit is always our first consideration.
