Coming Soon?
0

Is anyone out there keeping a list of soon-to-be-released-for-sale fonts that were originally made on commission for proprietary use?

I know that clients often demand a black-out period of some years in their contracts with type designers in order to protect the exclusivity of the typefaces they pay to have created.

Just wondering if anyone's keeping their eyes out for the release dates of any proprietary favorites....

Shinntype will be releasing Richler soon (10 year exclusive) and Pratt 2 later next year (2-year exclusive).

An interesting comparison: without having to give out
actual numbers, could you reveal how much the 5-fold
difference in exclusivity raised the price?
