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.
Look out, Clark W. Griswold, because Soaka just parked on your front lawn. Soaka is the grotesque, raw, country cousin of our slab serifs Motown and Lollop, and brings the pain when you’re facing down those rough Cobra Kai design jobs in the middle of the night. This totally out-of-control slab serif is available in opentype format, and is coded with stylistic alternate options that offer a more playful approach. Grab a can of Blatz and get ready to crush it on your skull, ’cause it’s time to hit the street with Soaka. In honor of Soaka’s launch, we have created a special PDF type speciman, enjoy!
Set the wayback machine for January, 2010: Network Osaka sends us their beautiful new serif, titled Haute. Immediately, it starts on a rapid climb toward becoming one of the year’s biggest sellers, and becomes a top-notch addition to the YouWorkForThem Exclusive Font Library. Now, fast-forward to present day, where we are proud to present the second exclusive release from Network Osaka, Burocrata. During the design and development of Burocrata, we worked closely with Network Osaka to make sure the finest details were reviewed, cleaned up and even polished with a chamois made of thousand-year-old yak fur. Network Osaka carried on improving more and more of the fine details with lasers and breakfast cereals late into the night, until finally, this amazing new sans serif emerged like a butterfly made of satin, covered in ice cream.
In addition to the release you can also Download PDF to see examples and specimen charts. (Sorry, no ice cream left.)
As Yves Saint Laurent said, “fashions fade, style is eternal.” And there ain’t no style like Underware style. For more than a decade these pan-Euro design virtuosos have been mastering scripts and opentype technology, and it is our great privilege to have them joining our library. They drop hugely versatile fonts, rock type workshops, run the Typeradio superstation, leap tall serifs in a single bound, and they do it all with the smooth style that can only come from the Netherlands.
One our most common customer service questions is ’how do I get the swash items to show up in Adobe Illustrator.’ Well, we suggest you read these tech notes from Adobe which will easily show you where and how to use these extra swash characters in fonts like Agostina. For more information on the OpenType format, check out Adobe’s OpenType Page. Each Adobe application handles OpenType a little different, so check the specific application help docs on how to view the opentype options, Adobe has all this clearly listed in the documentation.
The design world will be delighted by the release of this heavyset, whipped flare font designed by the talented Mr. Karl Frankowski. Augustus is a display font with a distinct style and personality. Like designer eyeglasses and salt and pepper hair, Augustus makes your texts look smarter, more interesting, and worldly. Believe. A fortune in fudge font, the pride of Dusseldorf. Hungry?
