Just like a butterfly emerging from its cocoon the new FontShop website transitioned from its public beta phase to “officially launched” status on December 1st. Since then our team of fearless developers have not been idle. On the contrary – apart from squashing the occasional bug we tirelessly continue to add improvements. We tried to create the most elegant and enjoyable fontshopping process possible, and now we are fine-tuning it. Some of the changes happen under the hood and are unnoticeable to the casual visitor, yet some features are specifically designed to make your FontShop experience even smoother and more enjoyable.
