FontXChange 5 Released


Today we released FontXChange 5.0 for Mac OS X El Capitan (10.11).

This is a free upgrade for all current FontXChange customers.
FontXChange is a font conversation tool that converts fonts between different file formats. This makes FontXChange useful to:

• Convert PostScript Type 1 fonts (Macintosh or Windows format) into a single modern OpenType font file that works on both Macintosh & Windows. End the headaches of the outdated two-file system of screen font and printer font combinations. Just one font file that works.

• Convert TrueType fonts to PostScript fonts. No more printing problems and incompatibilities associated with TrueType fonts and high-end output devices.

• Convert Windows fonts to Macintosh and vice-versa. Easily share fonts across different computers, even different operating systems.

• Convert to web fonts that can be used on web pages

A free demo version of FontXChange can be downloaded here.

Typeface Tuesday: Tasty Twists

These foodie types were designed for Sainsbury’s (a supermarket chain in the UK) ‘Twist Your Favourites’ campaign. The idea was to encourage people to add a bit of something unexpected to their favorite dishes – like sardines in the shepard’s pie, or horseradish to your mac n cheese. What do you think – is it working?
Designed by Analog Folk and Side by Side.
