A lot is going on at 71Squared at the moment. We are a team of just two but are working like crazy on a number of different projects.

The first went live today which is a new look for our website (great work Tom). We wanted to make the site simple, clear and provide more information on our products and I think the redesign does exactly that.

The second project we are really excited about is the launch of Glyph Designer X. This is a native Windows version of Glyph Designer. We have been asked for this a lot so we are really looking forward to getting it into peoples hands. We will be releasing a Beta version soon.

The next project is Glyph Designer 2.0. We were trying to back port Glyph Designer 2.0 features into 1.9.5 but in the end it was just too much for a small team, so, we have decided to focus on getting Glyph Designer 2.0 finished. This will be a paid update which is really important for a small studio like us to survive, but there will be a discount for current customers. This release will include a redesigned UI, Versions, custom images for glyphs, font wide and glyph specific visual metric adjustments, improved export and more. We are really excited about the new capabilities in GD 2.0 and we are sure our customers will love them.

The last project we have running is Particle Designer 2.5. The key feature in this release will be the ability to export particle effects to texture atlases. This is our most requested feature and we agree that its a cool idea.

So, for just two people this is a lot of work but we love what we do and enjoy seeing what people use our apps for even more. So watch this space and we will provide more updates when we can.

Regards

Mike & Tom
