Fontyou Beta Tests Collaborative Type Factory

Paris-based Fontyou was founded in 2013 with the idea that while designers share a love for type and often create new letterforms, they lack the time or technical skills to extend their ideas to the point of creating a complete font. One aspect of Fontyou is that it provides designers with a place to share such work for comment by the design community and receive inspiration from other work. In some cases Fontyou also plays the role of working with such type fragments to turn them into fonts or vectors sold on its site, with a percentage of royalties going to the creator of the submission.

Fontyou is now extending this idea by beta testing what it ambitiously calls "the first collaborative type factory." The idea is that those accepted can not only post type ideas and fragments but can build on the submissions of others. If such a collaboration ultimately results in a product that seems viable, Fontyou will then polish it before making it available for sale, with all those contributing taking a cut of the royalties. You can request access to the beta program on the Fontyou site.
