What is happening around the Albert Einstein font.

Posted by Harald Geisler and Elizabeth Waterhouse (Creator)


Dear Backer,

I just wanted to update you on what is happening around the development of the Albert Einstein font. Currently I am working on the documentation of the creation of the font. 


Also I am updating the help and FAQ files to incorporate the feedback you gave in the last months. Both will be released to you together with the final update of the font. 

One request I get regularly from backers is where they can download the font again, for example when one switches to a new computer. I have been working on an account system on my website that will just do that. Earlier this month I realised this for the backers of my earlier handwriting project the Sigmund Freud Typeface, who all have now access to their font. This process did not work as seamless and efficient as I intended to. Here I am correcting some details to make the distribution of the final Albert Einstein font smoother.

If you have a question feel free to comment to this update, or reach out to me here, through Facebook, twitter or contact me through your Kickstarter account.


PS.: Also I wanted to share some images of the Albert Einstein font postcard reward that was send out in December:

Last but not least: National Geographic used the Albert Einstein font to create a twitter campaign combining the font with chalk - drawing - robots… who would have thought of that?
