    That makes a lot of sense. I definitely understand your difficulty there. Because we sell fonts as packages and not à la carte, there are questions that we have to ask the visitor when they’re looking to make a purchase, licensing being the most important. That’s why we can’t really have an “Add to cart” button present on the screen before we know what they want to license the font for. It’s very tricky, and believe me when I tell you there are probably a dozen or more iterations of that very page. In fact, I think we’re already planning a rehash to make it simpler.

    When purchasing you won’t have to be signed in until you get past the cart page. At that point you have to sign in or create an account.

    What were the problems you experienced?

    Thanks again. :) I was lead developer for the site. The attention to detail can largely be attributed to Jonathan Hoefler (Director) and Brian Hennings (Creative Director), who are both impeccable designers.

    Lovely, William! I’ve never been able to stick with a “light” theme for more than a few minutes, but this is really clean.

    It’s really strange. We launched Discover.typography on May 4, 2014. Over the last couple of years we’ve definitely heard the occasional complaint about the interface, but nothing too alarming. Definitely not often enough to worry.

    Flash forward to August 10, 2016. We release “Cheers!” and suddenly start hearing a lot of complaints about the interface. Not bugs, per se — more concerns about usability and discoverability of interaction methods.

    I wonder what the difference is? The interface hasn’t changed. Is it something about the theme itself, I wonder? Or is it that we’re linking a lot of people directly to the the theme instead of the Discover.typography home page, removing context?
