Potential Web Design Headache: Fonts

September 15, 2017

Unfortunately, throughout the year we pick up a lot of projects where other web design companies simply can’t (or won’t) finish a project to completion. It’s never a fun situation, but we’re happy to help people get back on track. One particular problem we’ve seen is when a web design business delivers page designs using custom fonts. Now, if these fonts are able to be licensed for web use (or are free and hosted via Google Fonts for example), we’re good to go. But often, the designer chooses his favorite fonts in the design, but those fonts can’t be used online.

They mentioned that the process was relatively painless, but the end result wasn’t quite what they expected.

Working with Shawn was and continues to be great. As a new business with a new website in place, Shawn was able connect some missing items and fine tune what I had already developed. He went the extra mile and put together video clips for me walking me through the process on how to utilize what he put together. It’s really brilliant and so helpful. I can access these short how to’s anytime I need a refresher.

Another great thing about Shawn is that he always responds to an email that day or the very next and works in such a timely and efficient manner. He’s definitely proven to be a great problem solver and is there to help with anything big or small.

I highly recommend Graticle Design without hesitation!

We’ve had an excellent experience with Graticle. Not only did Shawn craft a beautiful website (www.statusceramics.com), but he responded quickly to our questions and requests. In fact, we were so pleased with the job he did, we hired him for another website project before finalizing the first.
