I’ll be graduating shortly and am thinking about what I’ll be doing afterward. I probably won’t take a job that requires me to be in the office more than for forty hours a week so that I can have time outside of work to keep designing type. Something I am interested in is pursuing jobs digitizing existing type; this is something I want to do anyway, so I might as well try to get paid and work with people who know what they’re doing.
How much of this work is out there, and what’s the best way to get it? Should I just bring a portfolio of whatever fonts I have done to Typecon and talk to people there?
