Do font licenses matter? After all, you can't copyright a typeface (except for in Germany)
For example, this image uses a font from a Japanese foundry. Japan has no protection on typefaces.
As long as you don't ship the font file (by rasterizing or converting to paths) who should you care???

Well, to be honest, only a couple of companies sue for font license issues, and only when it's a company big enough to have the cash to pay damages. Just keep pirated fonts away from office machines, and if it's a big money project, they can afford to buy the fonts anyway. I have a HD full of customer bought fonts. I also have a small collection of "illegal" ones that I keep around, and have used on small projects. Then I have a folder of all of the fonts my company owns, for when i need to work from home, like this last year. A font manager is crucial to keeping them all separate and tagged.
I've only personally seen companies fined when audited for fonts, or situations like Universal when they used a House Font on movie stuff. For most small designers, it's not really ever going to be an issue. The only time it would be an issue is sending them to a printing company (they never check), or posting work online - and unless it's a really unique font, most of the time nobody will know, or care.
You think a webgame could get in trouble? Consider the font is either pmuch entirely redone, or rasterized beforehand, so I'm not just shipping the font file as it comes
only if you're not profiting from said webgame or anything you work on
not to scare anyone but my client (a midsize pastry & baked pie company that supplies to all the stores in the state) got a cease and desist from a type designer.

We reached out to that person to do a custom font, but ultimately decided not to. We still paid for the off-the-shelf font and kept within rights, but the guy saw some warped type we did and thought we got into the file or something.

and then he got all bitchy and threatened to sue the client + us.

The big thing i learned there was to keep off the radar - if we'd never gotten pricing on hiring him for a real job he wouldn't have gotten all faggoty when we decided not to and would've never found his work in use ,at all.

How would you go about making a fade in text animation like the ones in this video?

Been playing around with text animator in After Effects, but I find it very unintuitive and can't quite get the look I want. The main thing I can't get right is making the words fade in on overlaping timings. Do I need a seperate text layer for each word, or is it possible to do smoothly with text animator?
Just use a mask. This is way too basic to go any deeper beyond that.
basic per word position+opacity animation
if you are having trouble with this, maybe use the animation composer preset that does this

Up until now I've been using 16-bit color to do most of my serious edits, but I've heard from a few buddies that 32-bit is preferable, especially when working on photographs. What are the advantages to using 32-bit color over 16-bit.

I know basic typography, layout, and color theory. Is it worth getting into it and learning more or are you fucked and overlooked without a degree? Cause I don't wanna go to school
>Is it worth getting into it and learning more
>are you fucked and overlooked without a degree?
Also yes, especially during these times of a global pandemic. Employers won't take you seriously, and if you want to do the no degree route, networking is your best friend in terms of getting where you want to be.
also word of advice: work more on your graphic design skills, I know you'll have some people tell you that (You)r design looks like shit, which it kind of does, but if graphic design is something you're passionate about then work your absolute hardest to achieve your fucking goals.

Next article of that site is BLM shit promoting bailing out white yuppies and negro/white crackheads destroying working class businesses. These sorts of bourgeois liberal faggots producing fashionable waste are not too coherent, while always 'concerned' and 'fighting for' stuff.
The point of this illustration style is to be abstract enough to avoid racialization and body typification but personal enough to be twee and approachable. It's perfect corporate design. It's the natural artistic reaction to an overly sensitive society which is why you all justifiably despise it.

every one of the stores in that shot is someone's vision of heaven. especially the taco bell with the old-school sign. i bet that's a longtime franchisee and you are likely to get higher quality food and service there than your average taco bell.
this is what almost every highway exit looks like in rural parts of the us. they are oases in the middle of nowhere sometimes.
fast food places and gas stations might be representative of larger corporations but the locations are usually run by locals so this is really a picture of people doing their best to make it. it's only hell if you're an environmentalist.
what an absolutely massive faggot. lmfaoo he spent 40 years to learn how to photobash and this retardation is rated as based by autists. least he could do in 40 years is how to photoshop properly. The ideas behind the images aren't remotely cohesive and the conspiracies are contradictory. I'm amazed how people consume straight troglodyte diarrhea as a shining image of truth. I guess making shiteaters eat toxic shit is ironically based lol

A classic

I get what you're saying.
But it's more of a visual hell than any other kind of hell. It doesn't really matter who or what's behind it when there's a screaming information overload in the name of fast food and gas.

is this a good font
fontforge sucks dick
Glyphs is another one used professionally, only caveat being you can only run it on a Mac. If you do have one though you can essentially get 90 days free trial by downloading Glyphs Mini, 2 and 3.
Is there... any chance a torrent for this software?
thinking with type from Ellen Lupton is a good begginer book for learning type and its purpose. The typography course from The Futur was good and scratched the surface of many themes that you could learn in depth later (don't pay for the course. It was available here some time before)

Okay this is a slow moving board so this shouldn't get too crazy. Do your worst (or best). Click the link and start designing pages. When we get enough I will publish the magazine.

don't you have a template we can email to a email address? canva is a pain in the dick.
For little people, yes occasionally, for Google, 20 000 dollar tax free. Access to all picture and photo data bases during the project. You pay if, the artists I use stuff from. You worry about copyright.
Yeah if you prefer.
Get a template and the email address here:
Great, thanks!
okay i'm going to pivot and share the canva link with some other boards to get some more action.
