(I would suggest to add Circus to the tag list: it looks perfect for a circus name.)
thanks for your comments!
i really like the stencil idea, too... i'm gonna work on this one as soon as i find the time!
thanks for your feedback!
i think its the highest level of being creative to work with bounded conditions!
great idea to just choose the invertation!
im simply impressed. super good work!
187 characters dammit!
Great find Lex, thanks for sharing.
Thanks a lot for posting this Lex! I would never ever have found that myself...
(They could have picked a different colour combination though... red/yellow looks a bit cheap.:P)
This is by the way probably a by-product of our fonts unauthorisedly appearing on free font sites. I have started releasing some of my work on dafont.com (not including Teatral so far though), and the feedback is pretty overwhelming: Punched Out has been downloaded some 22'000 times within three weeks, and featured on several blogs, up to swiss-miss.com. I've also gotten several requests for permission to use it in commercial projects. The bad side about it is that you lose control over where your font shows up pretty fast; I've found my fonts on several sites that definitely didn't ask for my permission. Which I suppose is still legally correct as long as they don't state having designed it and include the license with my name in the zip-file. (Which of course no one is going to read though.)
So the question is: to be happy about the wider audience and your fonts appearing even on magazine covers, or to grieve for the loss of control and potential license violations? So far I tend to choose the first option as I've never ment to make money with my 'structions... Might change some day though. :)
I could not agree with you more.
By the way: The licensing issue is settled. I contacted the design director of the magazine and asked for a donation, which he happily agreed on. Yep: I've officially earned my first money with fontstructions. :)
Favorited, this and the under appreciated stencil version. And good work coming to a positive relationship and terms with FFW and for pursuing it to begin with!
I think you should contact them and ask for a MASSIVE amount of money, for illegal usage! If they can spend £20,000 on one TV advert, I'm sure you can ask for a fair amount, or threaten them with legal action.
Here's the advert on YouTube
I work on 20% commission. :-)
If not go to YouTube, and search for 'new wonga.com advert'
Thanks a lot for pointing me to this, nippa! I would never have found that on my own... Makes me wonder how many illegal uses of our fonts there are out there - I'm sure the dark figure is huge, especially of the fonts we (or others) put on dafont. Still cool that the fontstruct detection network seems to work in quite a few cases.:P
Shasta, I'm sure you're right it happen more often than we think.
I think the easy and fair way is to ask them kindly to pay for commercial fee of the font, no more. I can suggest you to go on myfonts.com and watch other work and figure out how much you can charge.
But no matter if you get paid or not, it's cool to be picked et use in a ad.
tell us how you sort it out ;)
in any case, it's a great font and it mkes me think of old westerns and old musicals :) i gave it a 10.
Good eye djnippa!
This is a great font.
