  • Re: [OTVar] Introducing OpenType variable fonts

    “Restricted variable fonts”
    This won’t pass through marketing. You can’t tell customers that the products they buy are restricted.
  • It’s time to register your Speed Punk plug-in

    Type designers:
    I’m currently counting 82 unregistered installations of my Speed Punk plug-in for Glyphs.app (as opposed to 41 last time I checked two months ago). That’s a steep increase.
    Glyphs.app’s plug-in update functionality includes a completely anonymous ID of your Glyphs.app installation. That’s how I’m counting.

    If any of you people still hasn’t licensed it, now is the time to do it. Stealing other people’s software to create fonts that you’re going to sell is inacceptable behaviour. Even if you’re *just* a student. Anyone of you spends more than 20€ on a single night out. I know it. I’ve been a student. I’m giving students a 25% discount (after registration). The discounted 5€ prove how ridiculously cheap Speed Punk is.

    82 installations equal a whopping 4 months of my rent. Or did you think type designers don’t need to pay rent, or food, or other software, or go out, because they’re artists?

    Apologies and many thanks to all those of you who have licensed it.
