As a social media manager who is responsible for more than 16 clients per month, it's beyond important to me that I provide high-quality graphics to my customer base. FontLab Studio allows me to completely tap into my creativity bank by allowing me to create one-of-a-kind designs. Since implementing this software into my design process, all of my projects have been robust and attention-grabbing.
I am using this software from the past 1 month. Its user interface is simply awesome. I mainly use it to create and modify fonts. Its main advantage is that it will require only less storage than the any other softwares i used. But i think some improvements are needed in drawing phase. Its main drawback is that it sometimes not working properly in windows 7 and then works only if we restart the system.
