In today’s episode, I wanted to talk a little about a subject I've grown to appreciate over the last 6 years: the type design business. It seems like I've spent most of my time hacking ways of maximizing my own output, being resourceful, and imposing limitations on myself as a way of surviving as a one-person shop—which we were until about 2 months ago. Hopefully it doesn't come off to preachy, but just some things that might be helpful in the first few years of working as a tiny, independent type foundry, and you're keeping things LEAN. There are so many things you have to take care of when running a business of any kind, so we have no choice but to keep things on a strict schedule, and low budget.
