Hello Fellow Font Designers,
I have some very exciting news about TypeSnitch that I'm delighted to share with you!
Since July of 2012 when I first announced the TypeSnitch effort, I was overwhelmed with support from the type community and the 37 donors that helped us raise almost $6.4k USD to turn TypeSnitch into a reality.
As years went past and deadlines blew by, it was easy to lose faith in the effort knowing that we were getting nowhere quickly and our lead project developer had little to show leaving many of us frustrated and feeling as if our hard earned money had been flushed away.
Simultaneous to our development efforts, our good friend, fellow type lover and technologist Lars Schwarz (http://blog.larsschwarz.com/
) was also in development on a similar suite of font reporting tools. As his tools grew in sophistication and ability, it became clear he was building something far better and more comprehensive than anything we had prepared to release.
Ultimately, we decided to join forces and combine our efforts to create something better than the sum of its parts and we're pleased to announce that day is today when we can finally start to share the fruits of our labor with the folks who deserve it!
All current TypeSnitch project backers can expect to receive an e-mail from us in the coming weeks that explain how the new system works and how we're rolling out this new service.
Beyond that, all interested foundry owners who'd like to sign-up, please contact Lars or I directly via TypeDrawers and we'll be in touch!
