Colorful typography using InDesign and QuarkXPress

TypeTech FL01 | Room Palace B
Wednesday 17 September | 09:40 – 10:30

Theme TypeTools by FontLab | Duration: 50 minutes

Several years ago, Fontlab Ltd. introduced the Photofont technology that removed some limitations of traditional outline fonts by allowing the type designer to use the full RGB palette and alpha transparency. The first products to support the Photofont format were BitFonter, the professional bitmap font editor that allows designers to create photofonts, and Photofont Start, a simple plugin for Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator, that allows designers to use photofonts in their creations. Fontlab Ltd. is now adding three new products to the Photofont family: Photofont QX and Photofont ID are plugins for QuarkXPress and Adobe InDesign that enable designers to use photofonts in their page layouts, while Photofont WebReady makes it possible to use photofonts on the web. In this session, we will introduce the QuarkXPress and InDesign plugins.

Using your EULA to protect your fonts

This talk will discuss the importance of the End User License Agreement to the font developer as a means of protecting their work and as a marketing tool. We will go over the most important features of a EULA, what should be included, and how to enforce it. We’ll also discuss the threat of embedding and how to use the EULA to combat it. EULAs can also be useful in selling fonts. We’ll talk about how to include your EULA in your licensing strategy and how to make it work for you as a sales tool. A demo of the electronic EULA abstract tool will be included.
