How are you using FontBase? What industry are you working in? How did you learn about FontBase? We’re really curious to hear your story
Found out about Fontbase through the recommendation of other comic letterers, our job very much involving a large collection of different fonts. I’ve been typesetting comics for just under a year now (just as a side hobby) and only really realised the benefits of having a font manager when I observed the rather fast rate at which my collection was growing - it’s really made keeping track of my fonts so much easier!
Also really interested in getting into more graphic design and typography, coming from an architecture design background (currently studying).
I’m a mostly retired graphic designer, but I still do the odd job and things that interest me. I found FontBase when searching for a replacement for Suitcase; after years of being told it was such a great program because they didn’t require a subscription . . . and then they required a subscription. They also made it laborious to add tags or categories, something FontBase makes much easier to do. I have about 12,000 fonts so it can be overwhelming without a good font manager.
I really like the FontBase app although I do think it is missing a few features that I’ve become accustomed to using. There has been a learning curve for me and I am currently in the middle of a major glitch, but I do appreciate that Dominik is most likely flying solo in handling this. I like supporting small businesses but feel badly having to contact him so frequently.
I am thrilled this forum was created, and hope in the future there will be a more complete manual for people like me adjusting to a new font management environment.
Hello Tracy, nice to see you here
I’m not generally on Instagram or Facebook, but I was happy to find this forum mentioned when I went into Instagram to contact you. I really do appreciate the effort you put into this app. It is, indeed, lightning-fast, which is something I could not say about my previous font manager, and it was much more expensive.
