My Fonts on MyFonts

Untitled-1

I’ve always had new font ideas dancing in my head. Buy never had the time or the inclination to spend months rendering entire alphabets, dealing with foundries, etc. Then along came the computer. And Fontographer. At last. I was unleashed.

I now have over eighty alphabet and symbol fonts in my quiver. Shown above is my “gogo” family.

    I have a font that I designed in college that is very important to me, any ideas on what I should do with it? It’s called “Forma” or at least that’s what I named it back then and it’s just sitting on my desktop doing nothing 🙂

    First off, you’ll need a type rendering program. I used Fontographer. You will be able to import your characters from Illustrator, if you rendered and saved them individually. Once imported you can tweek them if you wish since the program is vector based. You’ll probably need to render additional characters such as accents, international money symbols, etc. I sell fonts all over the world because I produce “complete” fonts. Pair kerning is advisable. Takes forever but your font looks great in the specimen display. You’ll have to save it in Type 1, TrueType and OpenType formats. Then select a sales outlet such as MyFonts. They will provide you with instructions on how to group the fonts, compression and uploading. And they will help you trouble-shoot, should you have problems.That’s the short of it. You are about to embark on a perilous, albeit rewarding journey. It was a kick in the ass when I saw that Nike had used gogo in one of their poster campaigns. Good luck and I’m here.

    Wow, this is great. Thanks for all of the info as I have been putting off this stage of my font designs for a number of years but will keep on truckin’. Have about four typeface designs I want to ressurect.
