Streamline your workflow
Graphic Designers and Typesetters often need to be on the lookout for new trends and styles, to incorporate into their workflow. They also have to make sure their typography can be used on multiple platforms (print & web). This can be a daunting task for fly-by-night operations and sites that don't offer 'typekits' for purchase with a font.
MyFonts streamlines your workflow by allowing buyers to purchase standalone Open Type Files (.OTF) and True Type Files (.TTF), including typeface web-kits! This is extremely invaluable when you have projects or clients that require branding campaigns in print and on the web.
Save Time & Money
Bundles can help you save time and money. By purchasing a typeface bundle, rather than individually; you're saving money because you're buying several themes or styles all at once, instead of having to buy each one separately. You can also save time by buying bundles by finding themed packages, rather than looking through hundreds of similarly styled typefaces. There are literally hundreds of variations on typefaces with a script style, going through each one can take hours and you may not have the time, especially with tight project deadlines!
Not all bundles are worth the cost and similarly, not all standalone typefaces are worth their price tag either. You know your business model and client needs better than anyone, so plan your typeface budget accordingly.
Add more variety to your asset library by showing off new design ideas and making new product mock-ups. Adding or replacing an older typeface with a newer one can make a huge difference between feeling old and stagnant, or new and exciting! Graphic designers should strive to stay abreast of the latest trends and know when to use incorporate them into their designs. By knowing the latest trends and having a solid asset library of work for new clients to look at, you'll be one step ahead of the competition!
