Why is important font licensing?
TipoType, like many others, is a very-very small type foundry that produces high quality typefaces. Designing typefaces is a very hard process and it takes a long time to develope a font that could be used properly. It’s also an act of love and passion. In those terms, licensing is an act of respect. And, most important, the guarantee that type designers can continue creating original new faces.
