Generally speaking I am very conscious of art swipes and plagiarism, but I don't see a massive swipe here. I'm looking at both of them from your links and it looks more to me like a "based on" than a "stolen from" but that's just me. Kind of a "Caslon" vs "Caslon Antique" vs "that Les Miserables font" thing. But I'm not a font expert, I just like them.

I have a kajillion fonts (mostly from DAfont and 1001 fonts) and I don't use any of them commercially, I just like doodling around with them, so even if this one were taken down by DA, my having it is no more a risk than right clicking anything else on this site. I love picking up font sets based on tv and movie logos, which are not authorized, but someone took the time to extrapolate the full series off just a few letters in a title and I like having them to play with.

And I actually like the curlicues on the capitals in Drunken Gryphon but again, de gustibus et de colores non es disputandem, and etc.

cross posted on the Drunken Gryphon page, because you also posted on my personal page. Writing here is one thing, where the thing you're objecting to is, but coming to my personal page and demanding I delete this font off my computer because I posted down below that I liked it is, well, rude. Stop it.

I have to admit I'm not 100% sure that Space Geek is CG Symphony, however I'm 100% certain it's an edited typeface and I'm 100% certain that Drunken Gryphon is Sava. Drunken Gryphon is unmistakably Sava, which is what alarmed me about Space Geek. This woman does not have the skills, knowledge and patience to design a custom typeface. I know because I'm a type designer.

Obviously I also have fonts I didn't pay for on my computer but that was a conscious choice. In case of Drunken Gryphon I think people have the right to know it's in fact an illegal font, and then they can judge for themselves whether they want to take the risk or not. So I'm informing people for two reasons; first to make them aware it's a copyright infringed font and secondly because this woman is getting appreciation for something she doesn't deserve appreciation for. I have to spend 200+ hours to create a full font family so I find it offensive that some people think they can just add a few elements to an existing font and claim it as their own.

"but someone took the time to extrapolate the full series off just a few letters in a title"
I actually have respect for that.

"And I actually like the curlicues on the capitals in Drunken Gryphon"
The decorations are not a bad idea but they're technically badly designed and they're not even in the same style as the typeface. That's what actually alarmed me. If those decorations were designed well, I wouldn't even have figured out that this typeface is not her own design. Regardless of whether you like the font or not, of course it's not good to allow people to edit other people's work and claim it as their own—whether it regards a typeface or any other kind of art or design.

"coming to my personal page and demanding I delete this font off my computer"
I didn't demand anything. I warned you and said you could use it at your own risk, and I want to make people aware that =Ulario did not design the font and should not be praised for it. It angers me because I know the time and skill required to design a custom font. I hope you can appreciate that.

yes, I looked at your page. You are a professional type designer. I also saw your fonts when they showed up in the font group I subscribe to. They are utilitarian, perhaps even boring; I did not download them because they are not a face I would use for text. Also "Celsius" is misspelled. But they certainly are professional.

I don't even know this person who did the Drunken Gryphon. All I did was like and download a font.

And you come onto this page and try to smack down someone who did something for FUN and is not making any money off it, who just wanted to play around with fontmaking. Hell, even I didn't think it was designed from the ground up. There's only so many ways you can make the same 52 letters. If anything all she's missing is a "based from" notice. Hardly a hanging offense.

But what you've done is the equivalent of a professional artist coming onto this page and yelling at her for doing some fan art, because she didn't own the characters, and she might have referenced the pose from a photo, even though it's not yours either. And then you go to the pages of everyone who liked the fan art and tell them "Oh Noes, you have Illegal Art you downloaded, delete it from your hard drive or you are in Big Trouble! Because I am a Professional and I Know More Than You Do!"

Yeah, that doesn't fly on this site. Seriously.

Actually, it wasn't even done for fun. It was for a class project for my typography and design class where one of the REQUIREMENTS of the project was to upload it online.

Sorry to get all over your pages btw. But dude pissed me off.

Yeah. Pretty much.

The idiot (I'd like to use a few other choice words to describe him, but I'm more of a diplomatic sort then that) gave me a few face-palm worthy replies.

Pfft. "Professional". I certainly wouldn't do business with anybody with that attitude.

I got tired of listening to him whine, so I blocked him.
