After my tirade this afternoon, I stand thoroughly confused.
This afternoon when I had to buy my photos, eyewire.com was completely shut down with a message directing me to Getty, again no mention of A/F, and all the chrome missing.
Now, the Eyewire chrome is back, and I’m being directed to Fonts.com, with a small note saying that if I want images, the main reason I’ve ever visited eyewire.com, I should check out Getty.
I’m dangerously close to using the word “crackheads”.
Type was a small portion of what Eyewire had to offer, and never took much focus. Sure, let me know that you’re changing things. I can even understand jumping me over to a new site, despite it costing me time to re–locate the products I’m ponying up cash for. I’m a reasonable guy, I understand that these things happen.
But let’s put a little thinking into this before–hand, guys, mm–kay? Tell me what happened, and show me where to go to get what I need. I’m not coming to Eyewire for fonts, and that will be true for most everyone else. Don’t pretend otherwise.
