Font Bureau Offsite on Martha’s Vineyard

The first weekend in May marks Font Bureau’s annual offsite meeting on Martha’s Vineyard.

It’s when our staff come together to reflect on the previous year, and plan for the year to come. OpenType was very much on the table, as well as upcoming font releases, marketing directions, and website initiatives. Good times and food were also present, even though sunny weather was not.

Quotable quotes:

”Around this time every year I hear from brides and mothers of brides.”
— Mark, when asked about tech support

”You can’t prevent people from doing what they want, but you can tire them out.”
— David, referring to the uber choices of OT features available to typographic users

”Can you make a Verdana Bodoni?” — David to Matthew, in the screen fonts discussion
“That would be a Verdoni.” — Roger

”We have a company with attention surplus disorder. Give me a pound of rice and a bag of sand and I’ll have it sorted out in no time.”
— David, responding to the short attention span of the YouTube generation
