ABOUT







Typekit [Bryan Mason]

Typekit was founded by Ryan Carver, Bryan Mason and Jeffrey Veen in 2008, and is located in San Francisco. Typekit, the software, is a 2009 pay-as-you-go proposal for web page fonts, but there is a monthly bandwidth limit: 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. As a Typekit user, you'll have access to our library of high-quality fonts. Just add a line of JavaScript to your markup, tell us what fonts you want to use, and then craft your pages the way you always have. Except now you'll be able to use real fonts. This really is going to change web design. We'll be launching this summer with a great collection of beautiful and hardworking typefaces. We'll offer a free version of the service to get you started, and a low-cost way to grow from there. A truly scalable professional version will follow soon after. Interview with Bryan Mason. As of 2011, the only type designer on staff is Tim Ahrens. In October 2011, Typekit was acquired by Adobe.
