Bring Custom Fonts to Websites with Typekit
Typekit has partnered several type foundries to let websites use custom fonts or any font not provided by Typekit.
Typekit’s Don Loeb explains the process: “Purchase a license from the foundry, and in one click you can bring the font into your Typekit account, at no additional charge.”
The company has joined forces with FontShop and Process Type Foundry to make this possible, and is looking to expand its partnerships with other foundries.
The New Yorker is one online publication that has already made use of this customizable fonts, Loeb said. The headlines in the image above are all custom fonts used by the magazine offline, and with Typekit’s new functionality, is brought to the online edition without the need to use images.
“Every headline on The New Yorker is now searchable, selectable, and translatable,” said Loeb.
