Adobe Buys Into Web Fonts

A big email just hit my inbox…

Adobe acquires Typekit – Just a few moments ago, Adobe’s CTO Kevin Lynch took the stage at their annual MAX conference and explained the company’s Creative Cloud strategy. Part of that announcement is very big news: Typekit has been acquired by Adobe.

Unique typography on the web has been a constant struggle for designers. Just 3 years ago, we were confined to the “Big 3″; Times, Verdana, and Arial. When Typekit launched in 2008, it was the designer’s answer to using an expanded font library on the web. They brought expansive collections of typefaces for use on the web via a simple platform.

It will be interesting to see how Adobe integrates the Typekit pricing model into their cloud-based services. Also, the ever-expanding Google Font Directory is sure to see more changes in the near future.
