Why is releasing typefaces in progress valuable? Why is being involved in community important for your career? How can you break rules, while still respecting tradition? What’s the deal with resellers and foundries? During this talk we will take a closer look at the business side of type design, how typefaces are released, and options you may want to consider when selling your own work.
