  • Student Questions:

    I am a Student, can you answer Questions?

    We try to answer all your questions. Sometimes it is difficult since we are busy designing fonts. Please keep the questions specific and brief. Probably it is more purposeful for you and more fun for us.
  • Can I use Trial Fonts for Student Projects?

    Yes, feel free to use all our trial fonts for student projects. Please note that Trial-Fonts cannot be used for any commercial or public project. This includes also displaying work publicly for example on your portfolio websites. If you like to use the font in public, you can buy our Student-Licence (see next tab).
  • Do you have Student Licences?

    Yes, we support student projects with a 50% discount. This Education-Licence can be used in public projects (such as exhibitions, year book’s etc.). The font cannot be used for commercial purpose.

    If you want to use the fonts outside of the education context or in commercial projects, you can upgrade to a Standard Licence at any time, (for the extra cost). Feel free to send us a mail.
  • Do you give free Full Versions to Students?

    No, we do not provide free full versions for student projects. To be fair towards everyone, we cannot make any exceptions to this rule.
