  • Posted to ASK DN: Why is font management such a pain?, Feb 13, 2014

    Just for the sake of explanation: My ideal font manager would look something like Font Book, but I would be able to grab my entire font collection and drag it in and organize it without activating all the fonts. I would also love "Fonts" style previewing as well.

    Are other designers okay with having their entire 3000 font collection installed all the time? If for no other reason than not having to sort through that long of a list in Photoshop, I frequently disable fonts after I am finished with a client/project that requires it (assuming I don't use it all the time for other purposes).

    Perhaps. I am basing this only on my personal experience on Dribbble. My debut shot was the most popular, because it ended up in the debut section, which gets traffic. Everything after that you see the number of views go way down. It seems like a chicken and egg thing to a certain extent. You need traffic to your shots to get traffic. There is also a distinct possibility that I just haven't put anything up there to like. This is, in fact, likely. :)

    The mechanics within Dribbble are broken. You can throw up a great shot, but unless you have over a thousand users, there is no chance it ends up on the popular page, and chances are it doesn't get many more views than you have followers. Dribbble confuses me.

  • Posted to Ask DN: Good Books About Design?, May 01, 2013

    What kind of design books are you looking for? Books about design techniques, design history, reference books, the business of design?

    My thought exactly. Bottom line is it is a beautiful typeface and serves as a neutral option for designers to use across so many applications (interface, body copy, headline, etc etc). If it works, it works.
