Ha she had "not enough", rather than zero. True story: she went from low 5-figures to low 6-figures! Branding definitely helped get her there, but her amazing work deserves the real credit.
Thanks for reading Maciej :) let me know if there's any topics you'd like to hear about for my next article!
Thanks Benjamin, I appreciate it! Let me know if there's more topics you'd like covered in my next article
Happy to field any comments from the article!
Besides building sites Jekyll makes for a really great build tool when building themes or production sites as well. My dev/design workflow lately has been: Illustrator > Jekyll > Wordpress + Timber > Bedrock/Trellis for deployment and it works like a charm :) hope this helps!
That's certainly true -- half of Dafont.com being the operative culprit.
For newcomers I wanted to get them thinking about how they're going to use fonts to create a "voice" rather than decisively saying "this is my font, because it looks cool." But you're right -- there definitely are poorly-designed typefaces.
Happy to chat about the tips in the comments.
I completely understand -- your design considerations are definitely worth the premium
Beautiful and well thought out! My only criticism is that my desk disorganization isn't a $150 problem (though I'm sure that's just me). I hope down the line a cheaper version could be produced with less expensive materials, if this were in the $50-75 range I'd be sold!
Nonetheless, great job Jeff!
Same here, it's also challenging when your friends and family are also designers or illustrators, so they often don't need you to do a job when they can do it themselves.
