dc.description.abstract In character design in the comput er industry, the mathematical m odels like Bézier curves and B-Spline curves play a very important role. Earlier characters were stored in the bit maps, and the designer had to keep separate file for each size of each font. But after Adobe introduced the PostScript fonts into the market, the font s were represented by Bézier curves and those fonts can be scalable to any size. Further, this needs only one or two files for storing the entire font type. Existing methods of representing characters an d theoretical background about Bézier curves and B-Spline curves are reviewed in this study. Further, we have developed a Visual Basic program called “Fon tica” for designing characters by using Bezier and B-Spline curves. With the help of this new program we could design 10 Sinhala (my mother language) characters. In addition, we have proposed a new techniqu e for approximating the degree reduction of Bezier curves. This approximation appears to perform satisfactory.
