hey ppl, pls i need some help, i need that font Myriad pro, i just found it on OT format, can someone tell me if there are any program to convert it to TTF?
I'll begin by saying that I've hotwired many fonts before. In fact I've stolen Myriad before. Then I designed my first typeface and I realized that it takes many many months to draw all those letters. Perhaps Thomas can enlighten us, but I imagine it took Carol, Robert, Christopher, Fred and the rest of the Adobe Type staff many moons of labor to create Myriad Pro given the thousands of letters and languages included in the font. But to answer your question, I don't know if Adobe sells a true type version anymore. They sell individual weights of the font for a mere 35 dollars. Perhaps the best way to find out is to do this: Hey Thomas, is it possible to purchase a true type version of Myriad? Cheers, Randy
Sure. http://www.adobe.com/type/browser/P/P_1507.jhtml All "Web Pro" fonts are "in TrueType flavored OpenType format, optimized for easy on-screen viewing", i.e. they're fully compatible with TrueType and very well hinted. Adam
All told, I'd estimate at least a couple of person-years of work went into Myriad Pro. Most of that is due to the combination of the extended language support and the perfectionism of the designers (including Christopher and Fred, not just Carol and Robert). Christopher did the Greek extensions, and Fred the Cyrillic, both with Robert's guidance. Regards, T
I'd be careful about using the word "free," but it certainly is bundled with a number of Adobe applications. Cheers, T
I agree with Thomas. These fonts certainly aren't free, and using that word may cause confusion. I'd rather say they're included in the price of the applications from the Crative Suite set. Adam
You guys are right about bootleg fonts. That said, Myriad Pro is available for FREE from Adobe, if you buy their software. It's bundled with Illustrator CS, as are many other OpenType fonts like Minion Pro, and if you buy the whole CS suite you can download the complete Brioso Pro Opticals set of 42 fonts. At $35 per font, that's $1470 worth right there, more than the cost of the suite!
you found it? where did you find it?
