Just a little tip in case anyone is having a similar problem. For the past few weeks I’ve had issues with several websites (er, many) not displaying fonts correctly. Usually, only the titles, but at times all of the text on a site.

I came across this extremely useful and quick tip for fixing (at least for now) the issue at N7 Studios.
In a nutshell,
- Open Terminal

Beautiful. Swashes. Heart. Makes me want to design a children’s fairy tale book.
No projects to use this font for at the moment, but one day…
