FontSlice: The iTunes of Typography

A feeling of excitement abounds in the world of type — and for good reason. Consumers have never been more conscious of type as they are now, and more and more people are taking graphic design into their own hands. I believe the digital type industry is nearing a tipping point much like the music industry did nearly a decade ago, which is why I created FontSlice. In the year 2000, a typical music purchase was around $15.00 — the average price of a CD. That all changed in 2003 when Apple launched the iTunes Store. In six short years, the music industry nearly doubled in size, going from 800 million dollars to nearly 1.6 billion dollars in sales.
