Typekit, a company doing its part to help bring better typography to the web, has just announced an new partnership with Adobe.
The partnership means that Typekit users can now integrate famous fonts like Myriad, Cooper Black and Adobe Garamond into their own sites and designs.
Adobe took the time to optimize and hint its collection of fonts for the screen, ensuring that type looks its best. The web fonts support the same languages and scripts as their counterparts on the desktop.
We spoke with Bryan Mason from Typekit and he expanded more on the process of making these fonts web-ready: "Adobe has been working on the hinting and screen rendering of these (and others to follow) for months. On a pixel-specific level, Adobe reviews each font character-by-character, weight-by-weight. It is amazingly meticulous work — and the results show." Mason also said new Adobe fonts will be added to the service as they are web-ready.
We also spoke with Jeffrey Veen from Typekit about what the company — which is celebrating its one-year anniversary — has planned going forward. He said in part: "We're also adding more and more features that help designers focus on creativity and not compatibility. Soon, we'll be launching some amazing CSS3 tools that not only focus on webfonts, but all of the new browser capabilities."
These are the Adobe fonts that are now available to Typekit users:
- Adobe Garamond
- Adobe Text
- Bickham Script
- Caflisch Script
- Cooper Black
- Garamond Premier
- Hypatia Sans
- Myriad Condensed
- News Gothic
- Rosewood Fill
- Voluta Script
Not all fonts and weights are available for all user plans, but select Adobe fonts are available at every tier.
