New Fonts and Improved Hinting From Our Partners
December 8, 2009
Following the addition of four new foundries to Typekit last week, we have a wave of new fonts and specially hinted fonts from foundry partners like Mark Simonson, Underware, Paragraph, Insigne Design, and Buro Destruct.
Jeremy Dooley of Insigne Design in Knoxville has focused specifically on web fonts. Not only is he adding a number of new faces like Chennai Slab, Sovba, and Aviano, but he has updated the hinting on existing fonts like Aviano Sans and Aviano Didone, Le Harve and Le Harve Rounded, Sommet Rounded, Olidia, and Pauline.
Similarly, Jan Schmoeger of the Australia-based Paragraph has re-hinted their contemporary sans-serif Galette. Working to optimize all six weights and styles for use on the web, the additional attention to detail is obvious in the improved rendering.
And finally, Buro Destruct from Bern, Switzerland has added BD Retrocentric, BD Viewmaster, BDR A3MIK, and BDR Mono for your typographic enjoyment. And check out the great use of BD Jupiter on the Buro Destruct blog.
