Font Creator -- High Logic [Erwin Denissen]

At High Logic in the Netherlands, Erwin Denissen (who is based in Bilthoven near Utrecht) has developed a font editor called Font Creator. No type 1 support. Windows only. At some point, Font Creator switched from shareware to payware. It also added Scanahand, a Windows tool for making handwriting into a font.

Erwin Denissen started his career as an employee at ICT Automatisering, mainly working with Delphi. About two years later he switched to Bolesian were he made a move to Java software development. When Bolesian was eaten by it's big sister Capgemini in 2001, Erwin Denissen continued to work with Java. After several successful projects, and moving from software engineer to software designer to project leader, he decided to quit his job and fully focus on his own company High-Logic, he started back in 1997 as a graduate project (at Fontys University in Eindhoven). He wrote: As an independent software vendor, Erwin Denissen strives to continue developing new and innovative products for the world-wide typography market. Right now High-Logic has three products, a font editor, a font manager and a font generator. In March 2008 Erwin Denissen acquired MyTools.com, including 8 products. In July 2008 yourfonts.com was launched as an online font generation service. In 2021, he added: The upcoming FontCreator 14 will fully support variable fonts, as Erwin strongly believes they will soon become mainstream.
