    Hi Elaine

    It might be better asking who the font designers *are*.

    Unless there are a lot of lurking font designers,
    I suspect there are only a handful since there seem
    to be no more than half a dozen people who participate
    in the Unicode list who also participate in lists devoted
    to development of "Unicode" fonts (OpenType list VOLT list,
    Graphite list etc).

    I develop fonts but I've also designed and developed
    even more database and text processing applications.
