Ever since the “@font-face” CSS declaration, font providers have been scrambling to implement options, and let’s face it–most have been less than ideal. We’ve all tried to figure out confusing lists of unnecessary options, when all we wanted was some quick design options. And more than once we’ve been confronted by subscription payments and intrusive tracking code. YouWorkForThem says the heck with all that. We think it’s all about two things: design and efficiency.
YouWorkForThem offers the most beautiful and functional font designs in the world, and our WebFonts selection is no exception. We offer over 10,000 WebFonts, drawn from our massive catalog, and they couldn’t be easier to use–simply download and upload–that’s it. As always we are focused on design and the designer, and our Basic price is targeted at the design community, covering 50,000 monthly pageviews for 1x the desktop price, including free updates. That’s the most affordable price you’ll find.
Beautiful WebFonts, affordable prices, easy to use. YouWorkForThem does it again.
We came across The Typography Manual in the Apple Appstore just a week or so ago when searching for type related apps and almost snagged it. We have not purchased it yet, but it looks to be a nice one for all your type heads out there. (Via Müller-Brockmann)
CNN just posted a iphone app on itunes, and its getting quite the stir of attention right now. They really revamped the idea of a news app for the iphone, with saving articles, live video* and the iReport features built into the app. I think the price is fairly nice, $2 for such a large amount of app development work and a nice app is a pretty good deal. BUT….it has ads, and when you read the reviews on itunes, its like a wild witch hunt right now. CNN, people do not like paying for an app, then getting ads. I know where you are coming from with this, cough cough business model. CNN, ads in a pay app is a no-no, and you just pissed off thousands of people in the first week of launch.
Second, what in the world is with the news articles being white text on a black background? Its bad, backwards and hard to read. Next update, give me articles on a white background or at least the option. I posted a quick mockup (invert) of the way the article SHOULD be read, black text on white. For the love of god, fix this, right now I don’t even want to read the articles. This is a news app, not a twitter app.
Everyone seems to love some tiltshift style photos, so of course there is now an app for the iphone. By the same creators of Quadcamera & Toycamera. They also have this free version you can use online via flash.
Tis is a pretty dope little system for the RSS of MSNBC called Spectra. While I don’t think it quite works yet (each article, new window) its a unique and enjoyable experience (for some?) for gathering your news. I think its great for the iPhone generation who enjoy transitions, some life like attitude to their data interactions. But on the other hand, theres an audience who just wants to get to the raw basic (Google?), skip all the bells and whistles who would find this system extremely annoying. Either way, nice progressive idea to loading RSS visually and interactive. Now lets make it where I can add my own RSS so I can see YouWorkForThem rock out in it.
