Fontsmith has released trial versions of their entire library. I can set a sample chapter in a font (with limited character set) and present it to the client for approval without having to purchase up front. Once the client has approved my design I can then buy the full version to produce the finished work. This will save designers money up front and allow us to present clients with more diverse options at the concept development phase. It truly is fantastic news for our industry.
