We’ve been working hard on a brand new web site for FontLab and its software, and would love your feedback on the work in progress. Your opinion matters to us, whether you are our customers or our colleagues.
Right now it is still a preview: the main page and the TransType app page are the two that are more-or-less done, and we have folks working on the rest of it. We hope you’ll agree that these are a much-needed makeover and give us a modern look.
Thomas Phinney was CEO of FontLab until 2019, when he retired from FontLab to pursue his font detective work and type design. Previously he worked at Extensis (web fonts and font management tools) and Adobe (as product manager for global fonts and typography).
Thomas is also a teacher, writer, and consultant on fonts and typography. He has been consulted by Apple, Adobe, Microsoft, Oxford University Press, a “big three” US auto maker, the US Treasury Department, and PBS “History Detectives,” among others. He teaches type design with Crafting Type and has been a repeat guest lecturer for MA Typeface Design at the University of Reading. Since 2004 he has been a board member of ATypI, the international typography association. His typeface Hypatia Sans is an Adobe Original with over 3000 glyphs per font.
