Life

Some Days

Some days I have a problem, and I spend hour after hour looking for a solution that doesn't bring more trouble than the problem itself, growing ever more frustrated until I want to kick the whole project to the kerb and take up potato farming.

Other days I find a solution that kind of works, then another solution that's better, and then another solution that's better still, in the space of an hour.

Today has been one of those other days.  They come rarely, but all the more satisfying for that.

Fontspring and Fonts.com share today's Does Not Suck award for reasonable pricing and no-nonsense licenses.

Update: Or not.

3 We probably should have a link here to the sequel post, just in case someone finds this later with a search engine. Turns out they do suck after all.

4 They don't suck, exactly; indeed they have the most reasonable terms and pricing of any of the font vendors I've looked at.  (Linotype wanted 300 euros per typeface per year, three year minimum.)
They just don't sufficiently not suck to deserve the award.
