Simple commission - add 2 symbols to a wingding font

Post by jonfreeman » Sat Feb 22, 2020 4:06 pm

Hey all. I have a simple request for a job (paid, though you'll need to provide me your rates in private).


I have a wingding symbol font.
I have 2 additional symbols that I need added to the font file.
I don't have a suitable program to accomplish this, and I can't financially justify dropping a few hundred just for this.

The project is a profit-free for-funsies deal (a board game modification).

So yeah, if you can convert 2 black white symbols to wing dings, then insert them into a wingding font (replacing a couple of null entries) = YAY.
Please contact me and let me know.

I think more information is needed before anyone is likely to take this on.

What is the copyright on the font you wish to modify ?

I assume it isn't one of yours because if it was you would do the modifications yourself, so it's someone else's font you are modifying. Is it under an open source license ?

If it isn't under an open source license then do you have the author's permission to modify it ?

Also do you have an image or a description of the glyphs you want to add ?

P.S.

I could add the two symbols you want to one of my own fonts.
