FONT RECOGNITION VIA FONT MOOSE

ABOUT







Graham Meade on font prices

"Major commercial font foundries have not yet come to realise that you do not need them, they need you. You do not need, nor require any of their fonts at all. You may prefer to use their fonts, but it is not a requirement of computer use, or internet use. They, on the other hand, definitely do need you. You buy and use their fonts (hopefully). Unfortunately (in my opinion) they seem to want to release a lot of substandard work for prices, much like their own egos, that are overinflated. They are dependant upon you, and therefore should fairly price their fonts. But greed has crept into the hardened carbuncles that reside within the framework of their ribcages. People who create font should deserve a fair wage for the work they put into the fonts. But the operative word here is CREATE. Clones, revivals ripoffs and scanjobs should be free for they have used no imagination, creativity or honest toil in making these fonts. You control profits the foundries make, not the foundries."
