New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I couldn't seem to find an appropriate answer to this question on google.
I'm planning a project about "phonetic spelling". So I need a font that has all those diacritics and whatever glyphs a phonetic-spelling font has to have. The question that came up is if it is actually "allowed" to just buy a font family and build (alter) my own custom version of it for the phonetic alphabet?
Is this legally ok? Thinking about the process I'm just thinking of buying a suited font for the project and alter it in Fontlab or Glyhps (or whatever comes in handy) and create my own custom version of it.
I guess a consequent question is where do I use this font, right?
Hi all, I had a hard time finding an appropriately close answer to my question elsewhere so I'll ask it outright. My studio is working on a custom sans serif font for a client (lc, UC, #s and punct). We started with just the end product in mind but now the client wants to buy the font outright so no other usage or distribution will be permitted. I have NO idea where to start with pricing something like this out. Any advice would be great. _w
This is mainly a question about licensing - apologies to those who were expecting something more exciting! With the age old problem of keeping typographic consistency within a large organisation (2000+ staff) I wanted to know: is it feasible for us to get slightly different cuts of dax/trade gothic done which we can rename and roll-out to all computers in our organisation for letters, presentations etc, rather than paying for a 2000 user license? if so, how much does a font have to be changed before you can own it in that way, and how much time/cost is it likely to incurr?
Really just wanted to hear from a professional whether they thought this is the best way to go on this issue?
A company selling customizable products has an interactive site where a customer would select the colors/designs and add custom text (with multiple fonts to choose from) to the product. Think something along the lines of what Converse has going on here where they are offering customized text with the choices of Arial and Monotype Corsiva.
The question I have is, what kind of font licensing needs to be in place for a company to use fonts in this manner? I'm speaking more in the viewpoint of the company who is in the process of selecting fonts for this purpose.
I've been browsing these forums now and then for some time, though this is my first post.
I wonder if anyone can answer some questions about licensing in regard to creating diacritics while using various fonts. And any other advice that might be relevant to my situation.
