The Best of FontFonts on the Web, Part 1
Exactly three months have passed since we launched FontFonts on Typekit, the first service to offer reliable and secure delivery of non-system fonts for use on web pages. In those 90 days, hundreds of users have integrated FontFonts in their sites. Looking at the ways designers are using these fonts gives new hope for typography online. I gathered some of my favorites from the thousands of blogs, portfolios, and corporate sites currently using FontFonts via Typekit. The promise of professional alternatives to the same old web fonts is really starting to take shape, and there’s no better proof than the examples below.
