Find Out About Adobe Typekit for Creative Cloud Members

by

Adobe Typekit is an online service that is free for Creative Cloud members. It makes it very easy to use web fonts and with a recent update it also allows to synchronise fonts to the desktop. We will take a closer look at this new feature in this tutorial, where we will try to find a font from Typekit to be used on a magazine cover designed in Adobe InDesign CC. Let's get started!

    How They Did It: Typekit's New HomepageTypekit retina
    Typekit recently redesigned their homepage with some new services in mind. When Typekit joined Adobe, they set out to bring us a new way to handle fonts on the web. Not only did they create a fairly simple way to embed fonts on the web, but they have now officially launched a desktop sync option, which allows Creative Cloud subscribers to sync fonts to their computer directly from Typekit. This has been in a beta form for a while now, and provides a much easier route to local fonts than finding them elsewhere!Read More…

    Figuring Out @font-faceF preview
    Within the last five years, typography on the web has taken quite an about face (sorry, pun intended). It used to be that web designers were constrained to using web-safe fonts only; system fonts available on all users' computers. As you can imagine (or experienced first-hand), this was frustrating to us type freaks, but we dealt with it. However, in a weird way it was kind of nice because you had a limited set of fonts to choose from, so the time spent picking the perfect font was minimal (I’m not complaining). Now though, a font specific to the look and feel you want to achieve is possible, and companies can now project their visual brand language through typography.Read More…
