The Extensis Community Blog
The team at Extensis was delighted to lend a hand to at-risk youth in our home city of Portland. We delivered a trunkful of gifts and cash donations to the Transitional Community School. CTS is a private school dedicated to the needs of children of homeless families and people experiencing chronic poverty-related crises.
Last month, 11 Mo Bros volunteered to take part in Extensis Movember Madness. We’re excited to announce the winners and share the results!
First, a huge thanks to all the Extensis Mo’s who participated. It’s great to be able to contribute to a worthwhile cause at your expense.
Movember is behind us, and there are at least 11 sinks with freshly shaven whiskers left behind. There are also an equal number of wives who will kiss their husbands for the first time in a month tonight (despite having to clean up the whiskers).
Finding fresh fonts—an endless effort
If you’re a designer and you’re reading this blog, chances are you love typography and fresh new fonts. If you’re like me, you call out fonts you like and dislike in everyday use for your loved ones (They love this, trust me… just ask my wife). You bookmark good “new free fonts” lists. You hoard way too many on your hard drive.

Today we’re proud to announce our newest release of Universal Type Server, which solves common font distribution and synchronization issues and helps mitigate licensing risks for teams.
No matter how large your organization’s collection is, Type Server helps you centralize, synchronize, organize and distribute your font libraries while offering secure, reliable font management and compliance for your team.

This autumn, we released Suitcase Fusion™ 6 to help you make the most of your font collection. The new version brings full OS X 10.10 Yosemite compatibility, Adobe Creative Cloud 2014 integration, font library synchronization with Dropbox or Google Drive accounts, as well as bug fixes and speed enhancements.
With our spring update to Suitcase Fusion, we introduced the Fontspiration panel and worked with artists all over the world to give you a window into the latest, most cutting edge typography. See some of these beautiful type design pieces here and here.
The Fontspiration continues with the release of Suitcase Fusion 6. Check out some seasonally-inspired design! Our November Fontspirations captured some of our favorite things about autumn—leaves changing, fresh-hopped beer and apple pie for breakfast (why not?!) These pieces feature type by URTD, p22 and Blackletra.
