MyFonts:在线商业字体销售平台

Myfonts网站是由美国人Charles Ying创办,当时他想找一个特殊的字体,但是他发现网络上很难找到像样的字体网站,于是他就创建了Myfonts这个网站,可以客户们用最最快的方式找到最理想的字体素材。

但是查尔斯聘请了一些字体设计人员,为网站字体商业字体素材,并为一些公司设计定制的商业字体,目前已经经营了13年之久,拥有10万左右的商业字体库。

MyFonts is located near Boston, Massachusetts, USA. Our mission is to make it simple for everyone to find and buy fonts. In pursuit of this mission, MyFonts has pioneered new ways to search for fonts when you don’t have an exact font in mind, including:

• More Fonts Like This, to find related fonts using a particular font as a starting point

• WhatTheFont™, for instant automated identification of the font used in a photograph or scan

• WhatTheFont™ forum, to enlist help from font experts for hard-to-match font samples

• User-provided tags, harnessing the power of thousands of users to help each other categorize fonts

The concept of MyFonts was born in 1999 when Charles Ying wanted to find a font for a particular project. He was horrified to discover that the only way to find fonts on the web was to know the name of the font you were looking for, or browse a flat alphabetical list.

“Why can’t I just search for wedding fonts?” he asked. “This should be as easy as shopping for shoes! I should be able to point at a font in a magazine and say, ‘Show me fonts like this.’”

Charles reasoned that making it hard to find and buy fonts for the average computer user meant turning away 99.9% of the potential market for fonts. On the other side of the coin, he called for an open marketplace, where fonts from many vendors could compete side-by-side, instead of the more typical single-company walled gardens of the 1980s and ’90s.

Charles personally hired the initial team — most of whom still work for the company today — and commissioned a site design from (now defunct) Calgary-based Fusion Media Group. A year later, MyFonts flipped the e-commerce switch and began selling the Bitstream library on March 20, 2000 through the MyFonts.com website. Now, after over thirteen years, we are proud to offer 111,000 fonts from more than 1200 foundries.
