Yes it TRUE!! I’ve had people ask me before, where do you find your fonts?! Well here is an answer for you!
As a graphic designer, I love finding new fonts, especially if they’re free and decent, too!! So I found this: Lost Type Co-Op! Its a website of designers who create fonts and put them up on this website! Then whoever wants to can “pay what you want” to download their fonts! In their own words, here is what Lost Type Co-Op says about their website:
The Lost Type Co-Op is a Pay-What-You-Want Type foundry, the first of it’s kind.
Founded by Riley Cran and Tyler Galpin, originally in a whirlwind 24 hour adventure to distribute a single typeface, Lost Type has blossomed into a full fledged foundry, distributing fonts from designers all over the world, with its unique model.
Users have the opportunity to pay whatever they like for a font, you can even type in ‘$0’ for a free download.
100% of funds from these sales go directly to the designers of the fonts, respectively.
Lost Type takes no cut of sales, and holds no funds.
Isn’t that awesome?! I just tried it, and got a bunch of really great fonts for free! Yay! But in the future, and because I’m so impressed, I would feel more comfortable paying even just a little for new fonts next time! Enjoy the cute design of the website, too! Good luck!!
