Where are your old fonts? I don’t see ___ 🤔
I released my first typeface in 2008 (for free, thankfully). I released my first “good” typefaces in 2018. Some of the things I made during those 10 years are available online, but I’ve pulled a lot of them because they weren’t made very well, and I’d rather make new things rather than “fix” a million old mistakes, sorry.
I found your stuff on DaFont, can I use it for commercial work?
Absolutely. It’s on DaFont because I put it there, because why not, that place rules. It’s the wild west of typography.
What happened with Public Type Works?
It broke my heart, twice. The first time around, the model just wasn’t right. The second time around, I just couldn’t get any other type designers to participate (even though the model is solid). I’d revive it if 10 other foundries want to submit work, but I don’t see that happening.
What’s the deal with no single style downloads?
Well, I’m glad you asked. Some typefaces here have 20+ styles. You might not necessarily need all of them, but there’s a good chance that you might want 2 or 3 of those. So I’m trying to balance making a living and hooking you up with a reasonable price. Which is why even these families with 9 weights in upright/italic are still under $100.
Do I need to credit you for using your open source fonts?
Nope. It’s appreciated, but unnecessary. That includes everything of mine on Google Fonts. And the follow up to that, yes anything on Google Fonts can be used for commercial purposes.
How do you animate variable fonts (like in your Instagram?)
I wrote a short blog post about the easy html/css way to do that, but I don’t prefer that method anymore. For 3d, I use Blender and ST2. For 2d, I use After Effects and Varifont. I have nothing but lovely things to say about both of those add-ons.
