PDF Vouchers on the way… just in time for the holidays.
This update is specifically interesting for the 86 backers of the gift reward tier and everybody looking for a last minute holiday gift. And what could be a better gift than the Albert Einstein font?
The Gift reward said: "$25 • GIFT THE ALBERT EINSTEIN TYPEFACE • you and a friend, family member or colleague will receive a copy of the Albert Einstein font, ready to use on a computer at home!"
Why did this take so long??
I had to install a system that generates gift codes and then prints them nicely onto a PDF which is then immediately send to the buyer, and then another system that later accepts the codes on an order that is placed on my website. Well…after some time spend on this… finally the two systems are tested and work on my website.
I am planing to make this voucher available on my website by December 22/23 and the PDF vouchers should go out through email to the Gift - tire backers by Friday the latest, so you can print or email them just in time…
At the moment I am thinking about the design of the Vouchers - they should work online (for example in an email) and printed. The design should excite the recipient, make him curious to actually redeem the voucher - because we probably all got a voucher that expired without being redeemed - and I/You don't want to add another one to that list. ;-)
I came up with these three designs and thought before making a decision myself I rather pitch you the ideas and ask for your feedback and hopefully manage to integrate your feedback to the design in time.

Would you be excited about this voucher? Why? …or what is missing?
or with Einstein quotes in the background…
or with an original manuscript, comparing font and original:
Thank you very much for your time and feedback,
PS.: I also started first sketches for a new Albert Einstein font poster which will ship to all Poster-tier backers.
If you are interested in the notepad used here check out my new Kickstarter campaign:
I am creating a notepad inspired by the now iconic typography from female designer Susane Kare for the "classic" Mac OS used from 1984-1997… ok, Sorry… you caught me this was a bit of advertisement for my Kickstarter.
