Creative Characters interview with Fontyou, September 2013

It does not happen very often that we interview designers right after they’ve signed up with MyFonts, and we’ve never interviewed a group as large as Fontyou. But then, the subject of this month’s Creative Characters interview is not your average type design studio. The Paris-based initiative has an ambitious plan: finding new ways to design and produce fonts. Using online tools, Fontyou establishes fruitful relationships between people with complementary skills — lettering artists, type designers, font technicians, and more. The outcome: something that’s greater than the sum of the parts — collaborative font designs with originality, quality, and character. In your introduction to Fontyou, you proclaim it as “the first collaborative type factory.”

Mais que fait la police ?

Imagine-t-on le nom de Walt Disney autrement qu’en Waltograph, police maison ? Il ne viendrait pas à l’esprit d’un policier de vous envoyer une convocation imprimée en Fraktur, la police «gothique» par excellence, même s’il n’a pas vécu l’occupation allemande (l’Allemagne nazie a promu le gothique «pur», jusqu’en 1941, date à laquelle cette graphie fut décrétée «judaïque»). Une personne est associée à son écriture, et pas seulement à sa signature, tout le monde sait cela. Pour les élections, chacun y va de son petit paragraphe manuscrit (Nicolas Sarkozy n’a pas dû gagner beaucoup d’électeurs en publiant le sien). Les noms de marque (les «logos») recherchent cette association. Chacune a sa «charte graphique», son identité visuelle. Methods of Distribution: Digital Fonts and the Global Market by Peter Biľak.

Methods of Distribution: Digital Fonts and the Global Market by Peter Biľak

The text focuses primarily on the French typography scene. The Golden Age? ‘The golden age’. Everything started with the ‘digital revolution’, a ‘democratisation of technology’ that gave type designers the tools to create typefaces which would have required heavy machinery just a decade earlier. Transformed from a physical product into a collection of ones and zeros, typefaces are also ideally suited for distribution via the web, email or removable media. Obviously there is a great difference between physical products like spices and intellectual products like digital typefaces, but a similar model prevails in font distribution today.

How to Make Money Marketing Your Font

Last week you learned how to make your own fonts, now you can learn how to make money from them… Marketing the fonts you create is much like marketing anything on the Internet: you need to create a product that buyers want, you need to create something that is different from anything else on the web, and you need to spread the word about what you have. If you ignore any of these aspects, your creation(s) will be lost amongst the millions of other fonts out there. Subtle Influence Many ordinary people don’t care about fonts and aren’t even aware of the existence of fonts or the subtle influences the typography can have on their attitudes and perceptions.
