Women in Type
Women in Type is an initiative led by Flavia Zimbardi that aims to fight gender imbalance in the type community and empower more female-identifying designers to release their projects.
Phase 1 brings three collaborative typefaces, Octavia with Tida Tep, Jobim with Inga Plönnigs, and Hanae with Ayaka Ito, that adopt a version-based “in progress” model—where you can purchase a cross-platform license (covering Desktop, Web, and App) at any point of their production and get access to all future updates for free.
It’s an opportunity to support women while investing in high-quality fonts for a fraction of their final price, fostering a more inspiring and equal creative industry.
By downloading and/or installing, copying, or using the Font Software, You agree with the terms of this Agreement, and that all rights to the Fonts and all intellectual property in them are owned by Flavia Zimbardi and their collaborators co-credited in the designs.
Upon payment in full, Flavia Zimbardi grants You a non-exclusive, and non-transferable license to use the Fonts. There is no expiry to this Agreement or its terms, so You may use the Fonts in perpetuity. There is also no geographic limitation, You may use the Fonts worldwide.
You are not permitted to modify, adapt, convert, translate, reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble, alter, or create derivative works of the Fonts. You are not permitted to rent, lease, sublicense, give, lend, or further distribute the Fonts or any copy thereof.
The examples below summarise the most common use cases our customers have. Once you have identified yours please read all terms carefully, as the license will become a formal contract between You and Flavia Zimbardi. In case You are unsure whether your usage is permitted or not, please get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org.

You are permitted to install and use the Fonts on the number of computers You purchased the Fonts for. Any agencies, studios, sub-contractors, affiliates, or vendors of the licensee (You), or organizations owned by the licensee, must acquire their own separate licenses.
The Fonts are provided in OTF ( OpenType CFF ) format. You are not permitted to convert the Fonts in any other format.
You can use the Fonts for all kinds of printed matters (static/rasterized images) including, but not limited to books, posters, magazines, and packaging design, as well as for logos, visual identities, marketing, and applications in which the font software is not embedded within the medium. Embedding of Fonts in digital/PDF documents is allowed as long as 1) the Font Software is subset, 2) the document text can be viewed and printed but not edited, and 3) reasonable measures are taken to ensure recipients of documents cannot extract or use the embedded Fonts.
Styling, viewing, or editing text in a web-based application that can’t be edited by the end users to create a new output.

The Web Fonts are provided in WOFF and WOFF2 formats. You are not permitted to convert the Fonts in any other format. If an alternative is preferred, please get in contact with Flavia Zimbardi. Viewing and printing pages of the website is allowed, still providing the ability for a remote user to edit text using the Web Fonts is not permitted.
Web Usage Only
The use of Web Fonts on a desktop, laptop, or workstation computer is prohibited. The embedding or inclusion of Web Fonts or the designs forming the Web Fonts, in software, hardware, digital documents, apps, applications, devices, or in any other form is also prohibited. If You wish to use the Fonts in a manner not described on this license, You must secure a separate license and/or an extension.
You may use the Web Fonts in a secure development environment related to the domain specified on Your license and controlled by You. You may not: (a) convert the Web Fonts into other formats; (b) lend, or allow use of the Fonts via hotlinking or unauthorized access.
Transfer of licensed domain
You may transfer the rights to use the Web Fonts to a different domain owned by You and the content of which You control. The transfer must be notified in writing to Flavia Zimbardi, and You must delete the Web Fonts from the server on the previously licensed domain. Transfer of this license to a third party is not permitted.

The Broadcasting License can only be used in addition to a Desktop License for the number of computers that the Fonts are used on.
