Hi, TypeDrawers! For various reasons, it’s time for me to turn over the stewardship of this site to someone new. I can't devote the time to it that it deserves, and I think I've taken it as far as I can. Fortunately, I can immediately announce successors who have the personalities, skills, and backgrounds to maintain TD and push it further.
I am pleased to announce that Tiffany Wardle de Sousa
will share ownership and administration with James Todd
is a typographer and educator who has been involved in the type community for more than a decade. She has been a member of the SOTA Board, an independent consultant for various companies in the industry, and she served for many years in a moderation role at Typophile.
James has been a TypeDrawers member and Moderator
since its very beginning.
I feel confident that this combination of perspectives from inside and outside the current TypeDrawers administration is ideal for the forum’s next chapter. You are welcome to post any questions about the transition below. Here is the basic plan:
- James and Tiffany will have administration access to the forum in about 24 hours.
- I will transfer domain ownership to Tiffany within the week.
- I will continue to use the remaining donation funds to pay for the forum service costs. I project that these will pay for our current plan until the end of 2016. The new administration can decide when and how to raise funds at that point (or preferably before).
- Tiffany shall replace my seat on the Moderation committee. The other members of the team will remain in place.
It’s been an honor to hold these keys for a year or so. Thanks for your patience and support.
