I am pretty certain most of my trends start with "I have a question!" :lol:
It is then closely followed by "I was thinking about ____ the other day and wondered..."

Haha okay, in all seriousness, I came across a font tutorial today on YouTube and this guy purchased a $40 font and commented that he's use those particually for clients.
In a higher scale of graphic design, how does one handle fonts? I have loads of free fonts downloaded on my computer, but I hardly remember what some of the Read Me docs said. Do you keep the whole folder with all the previews and Read Me's or do you just keep the OpenType/TrueType files? I used to keep just the font files, but now I keep the entire folder.

I imagine that when designing a big level work for a company that will probably be on magazines, newspapers and etc, nobody wants to deal with the copyright issue of fonts. So all elements are legally owned and used as per their Read Me docs. That being said, would you then sort your font folder with "free fonts" "personal use fonts" "commerical use fonts" "bought fonts" type folders?

:thumbsup:

Keep all folders. With the availability of massive storage space, keep everything.
