Help Fund The Next Stage of TypeDrawers

First, I’d like to thank you all for helping to keep TypeDrawers alive. This year, along with our standard costs, I think it’s time we hire someone to help refresh the experience here. I would also like to be able to compensate our moderation team for the time they spend working for the community.

Donations can be made through Paypal

Thank you all so much!

  • I plan to continue my support of TypeDrawers and agree with your funding goals. Would you mind sharing more details, e.g., the total you hope to raise, anticipated changes in the experience, etc.?
  • I donated more than usual.

    Hi Marc,

    I’ll post all of that information next week; things have been extremely busy here so I haven’t had much time for anything.
  • Here are my tentative plans:

    A refresh of the website design (specifically the mobile version) that allows for easier navigation. 

    A creation of a “for sale” section to sell specimen, ephemera, and such.

    I’d like to introduce some new sections for discussing type in use. I’d also like to start a blog of sorts where members could do some writing (now that there seems to be even more of a dearth of critical writing on type.

    The moderators deserve some compensation for their time. I’m not sure how much but I’d like to pay them at least a few hundred dollars a year for their time.

    Bit late to this post. Appreciate the work put into the place. With regards to the mobile version, I sure hope when you do a revamp it doesn't break the current design because some of us such as myself are on an old iOS version. About 3-4 yrs ago I believe after the revamp it did break and I was unable to view it from my ipad and so I had to leave a post to address it and it was fixed immediately, it's been working ever since. So just something to consider for those of us on old devices! Thanks!
