FontXChange 5.1 for Macintosh

fontxchange_icon

Today we released FontXChange 5.1 for Mac OS X.

FontXChange is a software utility that converts fonts between different file formats.

This release includes support for the new WOFF2 web font format, bug fixes, and a UI update.

This is a free upgrade for all current FontXChange customers.

FontXChange provides many useful  conversion features, including…
• 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 End the headaches of the outdated two-file system of screen font and printer font combinations.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.

We’re finally back with another Typeface Tuesday! This week features Brim Narrow – Designed by Jamie Clarke. We’re loving the depth and layers of this typeface. Designers description below:

“Brim is inspired by antique woodtype and chromatic type from the 1800s. Its various styles stack together creating a variety of decorative combinations. Each layer can be assigned its own colour, resulting in a rich assortment of eye-catching results.”

Serif TV

Created by Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec, its name, ‘Serif’ comes from the profile design, which looks like an uppercase serifed “I.”
It comes in three sizes – Serif, Serif Medium, and Serif Mini. Currently Samsung has only released Serif in the UK, hopefully with broader distribution to come from this nod-to-a-classic television set.
