Big news yesterday for web designers. The font friendly web service known as Typekit has recently been gobbled up by industry standard design software company Adobe. This is pretty interesting news. I’m not really surprised by the acquisition. And this might actually be a good thing.
I’ve toyed with Typekit and have found the service to work really well. The service allows web designers and developers to have more customized fonts on their sites rather than the standard handful of web-friendly fonts available. It’s a simple tool with really big impact.
Now with Adobe at the helm, I’m sure we’ll see Typekit integrated into software like Dreamweaver. We’ll have to see where this goes, but all things considered, I think it’s a good move for everyone involved.
