Typekit Makes Sites Pretty. That should be enough, but there’s so much more!
In this episode, Ryan Carver and Greg Veen join us from Small Batch Inc., the makers of Typekit.
Typekit aims to solve all of the problems that currently prevent web designers from using commercial typefaces in their designs. Every major desktop browser will support linking to custom fonts from within your site’s CSS using @font-face. You can then use these fonts on your web site without users having to install the fonts on their system beforehand. => This really is going to change web design <=
We’ve been working with foundries to develop a consistent web-only font linking license. We’ve built a technology platform that lets us to host both free and commercial fonts in a way that is incredibly fast, smoothes out differences in how browsers handle type, and offers the level of protection that type designers need without resorting to annoying and ineffective DRM.
