I'm doing a project for a client who potentially
wants to do a full buyout of the typeface. So not only do they want full unlimited exclusivity, they want to make the font their intellectual property.
From what I've understood through my contact to their legal department, they don't want to be tied up to any one designer for future adjustments, and want to be able to alter the typeface however they like.
So I'm looking at a situation where I might have to give a price for a full buyout of the typeface which—as it stands—consists of two weights (no italics) and a basic Latin 1 character set.
How would you go about this? What kind of thinking would you apply when coming up with a number? Never been in this situation before & struggling to come up with a number.
