You may not always notice, but our team of fearless developers continuously tinker away at FontShop.com, going out of their way to improve the user experience and make visiting our responsive website as smooth as possible. Hey, there’s a reason they recently won all these awards and are currently nominated for the Net Awards! Lately they have been concentrating on the user navigation. We thought this to be a good time to have a refresher and go over the features with you.

Logging in (or signing up) on the FontShop.com website still happens via the sliding navigation that is revealed by hovering over the FontShop logo at the top left. Click the little key at the bottom left, enter your email and password and you’re in.

Once you are logged in, you will notice the Log in key was replaced by your portrait picture (if you have already uploaded one of course). Click it to access your public account page.

Your account page gives some sort of summary of your personal profile on FontShop.com, with several sections that can be viewed by clicking the corresponding item in the summary. The top is your actual profile page which is visible to other users when set to public. Below your portrait picture you can insert a short info text describing yourself and add contact possibilities if you want to – your personal website, your Facebook page and your Twitter profile. Then starts the overview of your public Fontlists, your Favorites, and the in-use images you may have contributed to the site. These sections can also be accessed with the icons in the top right corner, as well as your account settings and your purchase history. Watch out, the image below is very tall.
