Next FontShop: A Bold Undertaking

Check it out. The next FontShop website is in beta. It’s raw. It’s unfinished. It’s in flux. But we’re launching it anyway.

Why? Because we love the new design, and we want YOU to help us shape its development. Seriously. The site at next.fontshop.com is an open invitation for you to explore, have fun and test out the simplified, playful new design.

And then we want you to let loose: tell us what you love about it, what you hate about it, and above all, tell us what you want us to add to it. As you submit ideas and requests, we’ll continue to build on the initial foundation-stone, regularly publishing new features and modules based on your feedback over the coming months.

It’s all part of an experiment in collaborative agile design, jointly conceived and fostered by FontShop and the creative minds at Edenspiekermann. Its purpose is to get you, the public, to participate in the design process, and help create the perfect place to find fonts.

In the true spirit of the project, we’re not even going to bother extolling the beauty and the simplicity of the design here. Instead, we say only: go see it for yourself. Form your own opinion. Then tell us what you think.
