I've been lookin' for it a few days now but so far no luck. I'd really appreciate if someone could help me out with that :)
nvm, found it .)
I am looking for something similar to that too! Do you mind sharing what you came up with?
I designed a font in this style a few months back: http://www.kylewaynebenson.com/portfolio/millie/
I'm curious, how many copies of Millie have you sold (in how much time)?
And did you try to get the Lone Rider guy to just buy the font's rights from you?
It's certainly not paying my rent, but I've had a pretty decent response. Last month I sold ±30 copies. My type designing hobby isn't to make money, or to be noticed. That's why I sell it for a couple bucks. It ensures low sales, while maintaining a user base who will let me know how I can improve the font.
No, I didn't try to sell it to the lone rider guy. His interests are far from having custom type. But I have done this with other fonts that aren't up on my site.
Those are nice and at a very interesting price!
Kyle, thanks for the details.
I guess you're making type because you enjoy it. That's not a bad reason at all, but you might be able to afford to enjoy it more if you position it more shrewdly. For example I wonder whether offering the font to the Lone Rider guy for let's say $100 (maybe with a limited-time exclusivity, after which you could sell it retail) might have been better: you might have actually made less money (compared to the ~$60/month for the past few months) but you could showcase it as a custom job - which sounds much better than having yet another retail font out there.
